Nigeria born England duo Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori may be parting ways as develops in the transfer market ahead of the new season gets clearer.
The Chelsea duo who made senior international debut for England last year are on the verge of remaining at the Stamford Bridge on heading off.
Although Tammy Abraham who has netted 15 goals this season still have two years of his contract with the Blues, the 22 year old currently pocketing £50,000-a-week has asked for a raise to £130,000-a-week in order to commit to a new contract with the Blues.
Tammy believes the new improved package is reasonable and will put him slightly at par with fellow academy graduate Callum Hudson-Odoi who is reportedly earning £120,000-a-week plus bonuses in what could pass for what is good for the goose is good for the gander.
Germany international and Blues new signing Timo Werner agreed a five-year contract worth £170,000-a-week ahead of next season. Abraham reportedly waiting patiently to see what Chelsea will do in the transfer market before taking a decision on his future.
The arrival of Timo Werner ahead of this season will either present Abraham with serious competitio or perhaps a deadly strike partner according to Athletic report.
While to looks likely that Abraham may stay put at the Stamford Bridge same cannot be said of Tomori who is being considered for a loan away to West Ham as part of a bargain to acquire Declan Rice from the Hammers.
Frank Lampard has earmarked Rice as the prime target to bolster Chelsea’s defence next season, the Blues intend to deploy their former academy man in a centre-back role rather in defensive midfield.
The Athletic claim that the west London outfit are open to loaning Tomori out next season after the ace has played a limited role for the Blues in the second-half of this season, the youngster is now behind Kurt Zouma, Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen in the pecking order.
The Sun recently reported that Chelsea are confident of signing 21-year-old Rice for £45m this summer, even though the Hammers are flying a £70m or no deal kite.
