Tammy Abraham is at the ‘point of no return’ at Chelsea as a ‘host of suitors’ line up a deal to sign the striker this summer.
Abraham has been linked with an exit in recent months after finding himself on the fringes since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel as head coach in January, the 23-year-old having featured for just 140 minutes across six Premier League appearances since the German replaced Frank Lampard.
The England international is Chelsea’s joint-leading scorer with 12 goals in all competitions this term, but has failed to impress Tuchel with a departure from Stamford Bridge anticipated this summer.
Abraham has been with Chelsea since the age of seven and came through the club’s academy ranks, though the Mail are reporting the star is now at the ‘point of no return’ in terms of salvaging his career with the west London side.
He was left out of the Blues’ squad entirely for the FA Cup semi-final win over Manchester City and the final defeat to Leicester, his spell on the sidelines coming despite a regular source of goals in the Chelsea attack.
Abraham has already been linked with a host of Premier League clubs and is valued at around £40m, though that figure could drop given his lack of action during Tuchel’s tenure.
Leicester and West Ham have been strongly linked with a move as both clubs seek centre-forward reinforcements, whilst Aston Villa – the club Abraham fired to promotion during the 2018/19 season – have also been suggested as a potential destination.
Having impressed to score 18 goals in all competitions last season, Abraham will hope for a fresh start and regular first-team football as he bids to reignite his career following a frustrating period.
