Chelsea football writer for football.london, Sam Inkersole believes it will take clubs around £30million to prise Tammy Abraham away from Stamford Bridge.
The striker has been linked with a move across London to Arsenal this summer, with The Sun reporting that the Gunners are leading the race to sign the frontman on loan with an obligation to buy from their rivals from the capital.
The 23-year-old enjoyed a loan spell at Aston Villa in 2018/2019, where he scored 26 goals in all competitions and for his fine form, was rewarded a starting birth in Frank Lampard’s first team at Chelsea the following season. The striker repaid the faith shown in him by Lampard, as he netted 18 goals in all competitions that season.
Abraham has struggled for game time under new Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel, as post his ankle injury last season, the striker only managed 17 minutes on the pitch in Chelsea’s final eight Premier League matches.
With the speculation linking Abraham with a move away from Stamford Bridge, Inkersole told Football FanCast: “Chelsea, they won’t want a cut price fee to get rid of Abraham, he’s not going to come cheap. For any prospective buyers, you’re looking around the £30million mark at least.”
After falling down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge behind the likes of Timo Werner and Kai Havertz, a move away could be beneficial to Abraham, to ensure he is playing regular first-team football.
