Great Chelsea debate! Does striker Tammy Abraham deserve double-your-money contract?
Fresh reports have claimed Chelsea are preparing to offer Tammy Abraham a big new contract at the Bridge, but does he really deserve a deal?
Despite a few critical performances from Abraham at the beginning of the season, the Blues hitman has repaid the faith in him by Lampard by becoming the top scorer at Chelsea and joint top-scorer in the Premier League with 10 goals.
He also netted in the Champions League away at Lille, and his stunning form for Chelsea in the early stages of the new season saw him called up to the latest England squad, coming off the bench against Czech Republic.
His performances for Chelsea in the opening weeks of the season has also led to a lot of transfer speculation in the media that former Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud could actually leave the club and seek a move elsewhere, as he is not happy with playing second fiddle to the Englishman.
And it seems that he is about to get a new contract, as Frank Lampard is a big fan of the striker and wants to tie his futures down at Chelsea for the foreseeable future, reports Goal, as he continues to impress early in his career.
Look Abraham is now a full England International and a proven goal-scorer in the Premier League, so it is a massive shock to see that he has not already signed the deal to keep him at the club and boost in wages at Stamford Bridge already, but when he does, he will deserve it.
The lad needs to be rewarded for his fine form at Chelsea and needs to earn the money of a top player at a club like Chelsea, so even though a deal has not been officially sealed, Chelsea fans cannot wait until it is full wrapped up as they are sick of all the speculation surrounding their best players.
So the quicker he gets the new deal that he deserves, the better for Chelsea fans as they will be sick of all the rumours linking Abraham with some of the biggest clubs in the game due to his fine performances at Chelsea.
So if Chelsea believe he is the future of the club, THEY SHOULD HAND HIM THIS DEAL SOONER RATHER THAN LATER.
