Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham: I'm having great season

And since the Blues chiefs failed to land another striker in the January transfer window, it means Tammy Abraham will carry the burden up front until the end of the season.

Speaking to AS, she said: "Edinson did not want money to be a problem, because if it had been for money he would have gone to Manchester United, Chelsea or Inter Miami (David Beckham Club), who made an important offer for him".

The Uruguay worldwide was linked with a potential January move to Manchester United but a deal failed to materialise before deadline day.

It came as a huge disappointment for Lampard, who was able to sign players for the first time following the Court of Arbitration for Sport's decision to overturn their transfer ban.

The 22-year-old has taken the role as the first-choice centre-forward and has 15 goals in 32 games across all competitions this campaign for the Blues. "There are massive games coming up, in the Champions League also", Abraham said, as quoted by the club's official website.

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has insisted that he wants to kick on after the club's mini break from fixtures in February. He would have been someone I can learn off and steal his ideas to add to my own. I would like to push on.

Chelsea's form has been mixed in the last two months, but they are still clinging on to their top-four position in the Premier League following Saturday's creditable 2-2 draw away at Leicester.

Abraham started the 2019/20 season well but has scored just two Premier League goals in his last 10 outings. The west Londoners were linked with a move for Edinson Cavani.
