In-demand Abraham Set For Swansea Loan


Chelsea‘s highly-rated striker, Tammy Abraham, is set to join Swansea City on a season-long loan deal, according to a Guardian report.

Former Blues coach, Paul Clement, is in charge at The Liberty Stadium and is a familiar face to the England Under-21 international. The Swansea manager, son of late-QPR defender Dave Clement, was Abraham’s youth team manager at Stamford Bridge.

Abraham enjoyed a prolific season with Bristol City in the Championship in 2016-17, netting 23 goals in 41 league matches. Having proven himself at the lower level, Chelsea are keen to see how he fares in the top flight.

Newcastle United, as well as Brighton and Hove Albion, both promoted to the Premier League at the end of last season, were also interested in securing the striker’s services. However, Clement’s ties to Chelsea weigh heavily in Swansea’s favour.

Currently with England at the Under-21 European Championships, Abraham has yet to score but was pivotal in Nathan Redmond’s winning goal against Slovakia. A win against hosts Poland in the final group match will send the Young Lions through to the knockout stages.

Despite his appearances for England, he is still eligible for Nigeria, with the Super Eagles not yet giving up hope of the striker representing them.
