Chelsea set Tammy Abraham asking price as Blues prepare to make room for at least one big-name striker signing

Chelsea set Tammy Abraham asking price as Blues prepare to make room for at least one big-name striker signing

Chelsea’s striking options

Chelsea have of course come on leaps and bounds under Thomas Tuchel, with a top-four finish and Champions League final spot still very much possibilities this season.

The Blues, though, are most certainly not the finished article just yet.

One of the more obvious areas they need to improve in is the centre-forward spot.

Timo Werner, who missed from six yards out on Tuesday vs Real Madrid, has had some serious struggles in front of goal this term.

Elsewhere, Tuchel has tried to use Kai Havertz up top in a false-nine role, but he to has struggled in front of goal.

That just leaves the Londoners with a 34-year-old Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham as striking options.

Chelsea want big-name striker

Abraham, for whatever reason, is seriously out of favour under Thomas Tuchel.

The 23-year-old is still currently Chelsea’s top scorer in all competitions this season with 12 goals.

But Tuchel has not used the hitman in the Blues’ previous five Champions League ties, with Abraham also earning just three minutes of league action since he was hooked at half-time vs Southampton in February.

Now, as per the Telegraph, Chelsea are willing to listen to offer in the region of £40m for Abraham this summer.

Giroud, whose contract is up in the summer, is also expected to leave, with Chelsea planning to make room in the squad and the wage bill for at least one big-name striker:
