Chelsea loanee Tammy Abraham chalked up his fifth goal of the season for Aston Villa at the weekend, but is he any closer to making the breakthrough at Stamford Bridge?
The English centre-forward netted in an impressive win over Derby County in the Championship and is proving to be a useful source for goals at Villa.
He needs to try keep up his form over the entire campaign and scored 23 goals in 41 Championship games before during a spell with Bristol City.
Abraham, 21, is currently out on his third loan from Chelsea and has his work cut out to make the step up to Maurizio Sarri’s first team next season.
The Blues have Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud as their main striker options, who aren’t quite labelled in the world-class bracket and it’s an area that the club need to improve on moving forward.
Abraham showed last season for Swansea City that he can play a decent lone role in attack in the Premier League, but the jump up in class to fill that void for Chelsea is huge.
Sarri may have missed a trick by loaning him out this campaign, as the Europa League would have been a perfect learning curve for him to improve his game.
It’s going to take some sensational form from Abraham with Villa if he’s to really grab the attention of parent club Chelsea
