Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has rejected the club’s latest contract offer, with the striker insisting on a salary that matches that of the Blues’ top earners.
Abraham has lead the Premier League scoring charts at times, and amassed 13 goals in 25 top-flight games.
Tammy Abraham has rejected Chelsea’s most recent attempt to tie him down long-term
The striker has had a breakout season leading the line for Frank Lampard’s Blues side
Despite his form he’s not willing to accept anything less than he is worth, and has turned down Chelsea’s latest offering, according to the Mirror.
Callum Hudson-Odoi signed a five-year, £120,000-a-week deal last year and the forward is likely waiting for a deal of that size.
With two years to run on his contract the West London club won’t be panicking, but will push to seal his long-term future with the 22-year-old still looking full of potential.
The striker is struggling with injury but will hope to get back to his best an earn a higher wage
They have already tied down Reece James, Mason Mount, Fikayo Tomori, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Billy Gilmour for the future, with all but Loftus-Cheek enjoying their breakout seasons under their legendary boss.
Neither Olivier Giroud nor Michy Batshuayi have properly filled the young star’s place up front, and Lampard will be hoping he can avoid injury for the rest of their top-four challenge.
