Chelsea are blessed with a wealth of young talent in West London, many of which are spending time out on-loan, and one of the many players impressing away from Stamford Bridge this season is Tammy Abraham.
The 19-year-old striker has excelled with Bristol City in the Championship this season, scoring 14 goals across all competitions, and has earned rave reviews for his performances.
However, Abraham told Squawka of his plans for success- and it could involve a premature exit from Antonio Conte’s side.
“In three years I want to be playing at the top level, at whichever team I’m at. I just want to be one of the best in the Premier League, scoring goals,”
“Whenever I’m out there on the pitch I’ve just got to try my best and give my all – you can’t really ask for more than that. I love scoring goals, so if scoring goals is the way that I break through then I will keep doing that and keep trying hard.”
Despite having an abundance of young talent, Chelsea have struggled to bridge the gap between players impressing out on-loan and breaking into the first-team, which has become a major point of criticism for many.
The last player to rise from the youth ranks at Chelsea and remain in the first-team for the long-term was skipper John Terry, who is now well into the twilight years of his career.
