Leicester City plotting a summer move for Chelsea youngster
Leicester City are reported to be eyeing a shock move for Chelsea hot shot, Tammy Abraham. The striker has been in scintillating form this season,racking up 24 goals while on loan at Bristol City.
Tammy Abraham is one many Chelsea players who have been loaned out, he is also one of those who are making a significant impact outside of Stamford Bridge. Yet it is unlikely that he would be given an opportunity to show his worth at Chelsea next season, as the Blues have prioritised proven professionals to play for their first team. Chelsea have strong group of Youngsters, but are likely grooming them to be sold rather than to make first team appearances.
Leicester are set to offer a permanent deal to current caretaker coach Craig Shakespeare, and hen has started planning for next season. He sees Abraham as a reliable back up or even strike partner to Jamie Vardy and wants to sign the youngster.
Chelsea would be unwilling to sell Abraham out right, but Leicester hope to tempt their resolve with a deal worth around £15 Million. If they fail to get him permanently, they would try to get him on loan even if it means paying a loan fee.
