Tammy Abraham has warned Chelsea he will leave the Stamford Bridge club unless he is playing regular first-team football in three years' time. The 19-year-old striker has been a revelation on loan at Championship Bristol City — and Abraham does not intend to settle for a place on the Chelsea bench in future.
Abraham is rated as one of the Blues' most promising young players. But the striker has revealed he would be prepared to move clubs in order to achieve his long-term ambitions.
"In three years I want to be playing at the top level, at whichever team I'm at. I just want to be one of the best in the Premier League, scoring goals," the Chelsea youngster said, according to The Mirror.
Abraham has already scored 12 goals at Bristol City, but the teenager is not surprised by the success he has achieved at Ashton Gate. "I'm not too surprised with how it's gone this season because I know my ability and I'm confident in what I can do," the Chelsea striker said of his loan move.
"Scoring goals is what I love and it gives me that confidence every time I hit the net. I knew what I was going out on loan for when the deal was agreed [with Bristol City] and I had to get into the right mentality. I'm playing men's football now and just needed to adapt to the situation. Luckily I've been doing that. I've been performing on the pitch, and giving my all."
Abraham was part of the Chelsea youth team that won back-to-back Uefa Youth League and the FA Youth Cup titles in 2015 and 2016. The striker's success at youth-team level led to Abraham being invited to train with the Chelsea first-team on their pre-season tour of the US by manager Antonio Conte.
