Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has said that he is learning from the likes of Harry Kane and Sergio Aguero in order to become a better striker. The England international has spent the past three seasons on loan away from the Blues but he will get the chance to impress this term with the club unable to spend on new recruits due to a transfer ban.
Speaking to reporters, Abraham revealed that he had the tendency to lose concentration when he missed a goalscoring chance but the same has become a rare occurrence over the past 12 months, he said: “When I was a bit younger if I was to miss a chance my head would be gone for a while. I’ve been watching the best strikers in the world – Harry Kane, Aguero – once they miss a chance they just stay focused, keep going again and they get their goal. That’s what I had to do and luckily another chance came for me and I took it.”
Abraham contributed 26 goals for Aston Villa on loan last season and out of those, 25 came in the Championship where the Villains secured promotion through the playoffs. Owing to this, the west Midlands outfit are deemed to have made an approach for another loan stint, but that has come to no avail with Blues boss Frank Lampard looking forward to working with the marksman.
So far, Abraham has impressed during pre-season with his intensity upfront but he still needs to work on the finishing after missing a couple of clear-cut chances. The youngster faces direct competition from Olivier Giroud and Michy Batshuayi, and he surely needs to make a regular impact in order to better the prospects of leading the line. Chelsea start their Premier League campaign with a challenging away trip to face Manchester United.
