Great news as Chelsea ‘are in advanced talks’ to get striker Abraham signed up to £150,000-a-week deal
Chelsea are in ‘advanced talks’ with striker Tammy Abraham over a new long-term contract at Stamford Bridge.
Despite a few critical performances from Abraham at the beginning of the season, the Blues hitman has repaid the faith in him by Lampard by becoming the top scorer this season with 15 goals.
He also netted in the Champions League away at Lille, and his stunning form for us in the early stages of the new season saw him called up to the latest England squad, coming off the bench against Czech Republic.
His performances for us in the opening weeks of the season has also led to a lot of transfer speculation in the media that former Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud could actually leave the club and seek a move elsewhere, as he is not happy with playing second fiddle to the Englishman.
And it seems that he is about to get a new contract, as Frank Lampard is a big fan of the striker and wants to tie his futures down for the foreseeable future, recent reports have claimed, as he continues to impress early in his career.
The four-capped England international’s £50,000-a-week contract is set to expire in June 2022 but we have offered the forward a lucrative five-year deal worth £7.85million-a-year (£150k-a-week), Journalist Nicola Schira has claimed.
“Chelsea are in advanced talks with Tammy Abraham for a new long-term contract until 2025. Blues have offered to him a wages of €8M a year,”

Look Abraham is now a full England International and a proven goal-scorer in the Premier League, so it is a massive shock to see that he has not already signed the deal to keep him at the club and boost in wages at Stamford Bridge already, but when he does, he will deserve it.
It is great news that he is very close to agreeing a new deal with the club.
