REPORT: Tammy Abraham Gives Chelsea Wage Demands

Tammy Abraham

Tammy Abraham has told Chelsea that he wants his new contract to be worth the same as some of the club’s other stars.

The England international, who scored the decisive goal against Crystal Palace last night, is demanding £130,000 a week, according to Gary Jacob of The Times and Mirror Online’s Daniel Wittenberg. A new deal of that value would be in line with fellow academy graduate Callum Hudson-Odoi.

The 22-year-old has two years left on his current £50,000-a-week deal but may decide his future sooner given Chelsea’s recent transfer activity.

Both Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech have already signed for the club this summer. Werner’s deal is reportedly worth £170,000 per week; the German has begun training separately at the club.

Abraham Wants to Feel Valued By Chelsea

Abraham is believed to be wanting a new deal to better represent his worth at Stamford Bridge. Hudson-Odoi, who is three years older than him, has made just seven starts this season – in comparison to the striker’s 24 appearances and 15 goals.

Despite netting in last night’s 3-2 win over Palace, Abraham hadn’t scored in the ten games prior. The forward has come off the bench in the last two matches, with Frank Lampard preferring Olivier Giroud up top. The Chelsea boss has been open in his desire for the youngster to show more effort in recent matches.

Lampard Wants Abraham to Focus On His Football

Chelsea boss Lampard isn’t concerned by Abraham’s contract situation, stating: “Tammy’s contract is not at a critical level and I will leave it to him and the club to discuss.

“He has had a really good season. He needs to focus on giving us that Tammy we had earlier in the season, when he was scoring regularly. You could see it in his demeanour through the week, that is what he needs to sustain all the time.”
