Chelsea Set to Offer Tammy Abraham New Contract Worth £100,000-a-Week

​Chelsea are preparing to offer a new long-term contract to young striker Tammy Abraham worth £100,000-a-week.

His current deal at Stamford Bridge is due to expire in 2022, with the Blues thought to have been planning negotiations with the 21-year-old since his return from a successful loan spell at Aston Villa.

The forward scored 25 goals last term to help the Midlands outfit win promotion from the Championship before being fast-tracked into Frank Lampard’s first-team squad this season.

Abraham hit a fine brace on the weekend as ​Chelsea won 3-2 away to ​Norwich City, their new head coach’s first victory since taking over the reigns in west London.

According to the ​Telegraph, Lampard is eager to secure the future of the starlet, who could potentially see his £50,000 weekly wage doubled. Chelsea have agreed extensions for Mason Mount and Ruben Loftus-Cheek over the summer, and both are expected to play significant roles for the team in 2019/20.

The latter is currently receiving treatment for a ruptured Achilles tendon, whilst his 20-year-old teammate has been a shining light in a testing start to the season for the Blues.

Mount and Abraham are the club’s only goal scorers in the ​Premier League thus far this term, the pair combining to seal the win at Carrow Road on Saturday.

Despite struggling against ​Liverpool and ​Manchester United in Chelsea’s first two competitive fixtures of the year, the striker is already showing clear signs of improvement from his last top-flight campaign.

Abraham was loaned out to Swansea City in 2017/18, netting just five times in 31 appearances as the Welsh side were relegated.
