England striker wants to lead Chelsea attack and Hoddle tells Lampard ‘right time’ to lead Blues
Tammy Abraham says he wants to “breakthrough” at Chelsea in the Premier League next season after a successful loan spell with Aston Villa.
The 21-year-old scored 26 goals in the Championship this season, helping Villa reach the play-off final, where they clinched promotion against Derby at Wembley.
Now the talented young man has admitted that he wants to breakthrough and be the answer to their much unsolved Striker issues.[the_ad id=”164″]
He said on the Sky Sports website: “Chelsea is obviously the club that I have been at since a young so the aim is to try and breakthrough there.
“Like I say, you can never say never. We’ll see how things look.”
Abraham has long been regarded as one of Chelsea’s most promising young players and he could be given a chance to stake a claim in the first-team squad next season with the club facing the prospect of a 12-month transfer ban.
The young striker recently admitted that he is ready to lead the Chelsea attack, telling the Sky Sports website: “The aim is to be at the highest level and playing the best football, and if Chelsea say they need me there I will put 100 per cent in,” he said.
“Every player wants to start. Obviously if it is at Chelsea, a team like Chelsea is always difficult because they have got world-class players.
“It is always going to be difficult to bring in youngsters and bring in people like myself – it is a big role.
“But for me, it is about believing in myself and just keep doing what I do.”
Meanwhile, Glenn Hoddle has claimed that it is the ‘right time’ for Frank Lampard to step up and complete a move to Chelsea.
Sarri was brought in to get Champions League football for next season, which he accomplished by finishing third in the Premier League, and then added the Europa League title to his cabinet, which should have saved his job with the club But reports have now claimed that we are lining up a number of possible replacements for Sarri after they agreed to let him leave the club and make a move to Italian giants Juventus.
The former England midfielder, who guided Derby to the Championship play-off final in his first season in management, won every major honour during a 13-year spell and Hoddle told BBC Sport website: “I can see Frank managing Chelsea Football Club at some stage in his career.
“I don’t believe that you are too young or it is too early. It might be the right time for him.
“I just feel that (with) Chelsea at this moment in time, there is a bit of a crossroads with what is going on off the pitch and on the pitch.
“(Eden) Hazard has gone, if the transfer embargo is there for two windows, it is going to be a real balancing act, and a really experienced manager would find it difficult.”
