Sarri admits striker may leave Chelsea before transfer deadline

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has revealed that striker Tammy Abraham may leave Stamford Bridge before the European Transfer Deadline closes tonight.

20-year-old Abraham initially impressed on loan with Swansea City last season, but he struggled for form the longer the season went on and the Welsh side eventually succumbed to relegation from the Premier League.

Sarri has now confirmed that the England U21 international will be allowed to leave Chelsea if he so chooses as the Italian coach cannot guarantee him first-team football.

‘I don’t think we need anything. Out? I don’t know, I don’t. Maybe Tammy [Abraham], it is up to him. I am not able to guarantee to him a spot at the moment.” Sarri told the press today ahead of his sides game against Bournemouth.

“If he wants to remain I am very happy with him. He is young as a striker, he can improve more. It is up to him.”
