Chelsea transfer news: £60 million rated striker sends message to fans about possible £180,000-a-week Blues deal
Tammy Abraham has commented on reports he is demanding £180,000 a week at Chelsea or asked to be the highest earner at the club.
Since the arrival of Frank Lampard in the summer, a lot of the younger players at Stamford Bridge have been making a massive impact on the side and have played so well this season, that Chelsea may in fact get back inside the top four spots and get Champions League football for next season.
But one youngster has been very impressive this season and that is Abraham, who is now easily the clubs number one striker and is the Blues’ top scorer so far this season after repaying the faith that Lampard showed him at the beginning of the season.
However, there has been some shock reports that he could decide to leave the club at the end of the season if he does not get the contract that he desire, with reports suggesting Abraham is holding out a for bumper pay packet after reportedly turning down Chelsea’s latest contract offer.
The highly-rated 22-year-old has seen several of his fellow academy graduates signing new contracts at the club, with the brilliantly gifted Callum Hudson-Odoi recently signing a whopping £180,000-a-week deal, and reports have suggested that Abraham believes that he deserves a contract similar to his England team-mate.
However, he has been concentrating on trying to regain full fitness, according to the Telegraph, but has not made these demands and And the goalscorer, 22, relayed his thoughts on Instagram.

So all those fake reports can shush!!
Tammyabraham1 responded: ‘Finally some real news
Look, Abraham is a brilliantly gifted young man that could develop into one of the best strikers in the Premier League, and his goals for the club have helped Lampard keep pace with the top four spots, so he fully deserves the same kind of deal as Hudson-Odoi.
Odoi has not made that much of an impact this season and if you had to choose between him and Abraham, THE STRIKERS GOALS are what matters. So if he struggles to get the contract that he deserves, the he should consider his future at the club because many other sides will pay that kind of money for his services.
But it would be a shock to see him get around £180,000-a-week to stay.
