Chelsea & Tammy Abraham
Back in the summer, Chelsea loaned striker Tammy Abraham to Swansea.
Before he agreed his Swansea deal, Abraham agreed a new five-year deal with Chelsea.
The forward has a busy summer after he exploded in 2016-17 on loan with Bristol City in the Championship He scored 26 goals in 48 appearances for the club, whilst becoming the highest-scoring teenager in Championship history.
Good for Swansea
Last weekend in the Premier League, Tammy Abraham was on fire for Swansea.
In his best performance since joining from Chelsea, Abraham scored twice in a 2-0 home win over Huddersfield Town.
Abraham is now up to four Premier League goals for the season for Swansea.
Swansea are 13th in the table with eight points from eight games.
At the same time, Chelsea are struggling right now. They’ve lost back to back games against Man City and Crystal Palace in the league.
That poor run coincided with an injury to Alvaro Morata. And with Michy Batshuayi unable to step up to the plate, some Blues fans have been calling for Abraham to return.
But according to the London Evening Standard, that’s not possible right now. Readers are told the following about Chelsea’s ability to recall their forward:
Standard Sport understands that the only break clause Chelsea inserted was based on Abraham making a minimum amount of appearances, just to ensure he didn’t spend the whole campaign on the bench.
If the England Under-21 international didn’t reach that figure then they could trigger the option.
But it is believed he is already closing in on that amount after playing just 10 times and there are over two months until the window opens.
