Report: Dortmund approach Chelsea about signing player Lampard said had a 'great attitude'

Borussia Dortmund have reportedly made contact with Chelsea about possibly taking Tammy Abraham off their hands.

According to 90min, Dortmund are interested in the situations regarding Abraham and Callum-Hudson-Odoi.

The latter has already been linked with a move to BVB by Eurosport.

Hudson-Odoi’s fellow academy graduate is seemingly now part of the equation.

Tammy walking the tight rope

Abraham’s future at Chelsea continues to hang by thread.

Thomas Tuchel hasn’t started the striker in any competition since February, a decision that’s left a lot to desire about his position at Stamford Bridge.

There will be no shortage of suitors who would snap up the 23-year-old if he departs his boyhood club.

West Ham United and Leicester City are said to be the two Premier League sides most interested.

If Abraham fancies a change of country, Dortmund would feel like a strong fit for a young player trying to cut their teeth abroad.

Jadon Sancho is the perfect example.

£40m (Telegraph) is the apparent asking price for the England international. Some might be hesitant to cough up that kind of money.

What can Abraham offer?

Despite amassing a meagre number of minutes in the past few months, the towering centre-forward still has plenty to offer in attack.

He remains Chelsea’s joint top scorer this season with 12 goals, a slight fall on the 18 he managed in 2019/20.

That campaign was spent entirely under Frank Lampard. The former midfielder said Abraham had a ‘great attitude ‘ and a ‘desire to score goals’.

His relationship with Tuchel hasn’t quite been so endearing.

Signing a new man to lead the line remains top of the Blues transfer wish list, which does not read well for Abraham.
