Tammy Abraham has revealed his ambition to match Chelsea legends Didier Drogba and John Terry.
The 21-year-old has made a huge impression since returning to Stamford Bridge from a loan spell at Aston Villa this summer, scoring seven goals in five Premier League appearances after being handed his chance by new manager Frank Lampard.
Chelsea’s Champions League campaign begins this week as Spanish side Valencia visit on Tuesday evening, and ahead of the clash Abraham has revealed his excitement as he prepares to play European football for the first time.
The forward says he is ‘living the dream’ at Chelsea and has expressed his delight at his impressive start to the new season, revealing his ambition to match the likes of Terry and Drogba in becoming a club great.
“I have grown up watching big stars playing in the Champions League, and to play in it myself would obviously be a dream,” Abraham told the Telegraph.
“Players like the gaffer [Frank Lampard], Didier Drogba and John Terry are great legends. They have been there and done it. I would like to follow the same path.
“I am delighted to be scoring goals for a team I have grown up loving and have always wanted to play for. It is just an amazing feeling and hasn’t kicked in yet.
“Hopefully this is the beginning of a great career at Chelsea. I’m living the dream and I need to keep it running.”
