Lampard praised for agreeing Werner deal but Chelsea fans sent over over 15-goal Blues star
Steve Nicol has praised Frank Lampard’s move for Timo Werner but believes the deal would ‘spell the end’ for Tammy Abraham at Chelsea.
For the best part of a year the 24-year-old has been linked with a move to Liverpool, with Jurgen Klopp said to have called him many times concerning a transfer and Werner himself allegedly wanting to play for Liverpool, but a move to Anfield will not happen as he will rock up at the Bridge
He will be a real challenge for Tammy Abraham, who has firmly established himself as one of the most exciting young strikers in the Premier League, and even in Europe.
Abraham, who was beginning to hit his stride with 15 goals for us this season, appears to approve of the deal after ‘liking’ a post on Instagram on Thursday night – but Nicol reckons the England striker should be concerned for his future at Stamford Bridge.
‘I don’t believe Frank and Chelsea are going to change the way they play,’ the ex-Liverpool defender said on ESPN.
‘And you have to say that signing Werner would spell the end for Tammy Abraham. I mean goodness knows what is going through his head.
‘Allegedly Frank has been telling Werner that he is going to build the team around him so you don’t build your team around a wide midfielder.
‘You build through the spine so that means straight away that Tammy Abraham is in trouble.
‘It’s a good move from Frank though because he is trying to take Chelsea from challenging for the top four to competing at the top for the title.’
I mean Abraham has been brilliant, but we need to add another striker to the side and Tammy needs to be prepared to be ready for the challenge, if not, then he will never make it at a big club.
But we will be very excited to see these two up top next season, wont you guys?[the_ad id=”164″]
