Tammy Abraham is on the cusp of penning a new £100,000-a-week deal with Chelsea, according to reports.
The 22-year-old striker has had a blistering start to the season in front of goal and is currently joint top of the scoring charts in the Premier League alongside Manchester City star Sergio Aguero.
His impressive form under Frank Lampard has also seen him receive an England call-up.
And according to Sky Sport Italia, Chelsea are confident that they will soon come to a deal with Abraham.
There is a level of surprise that Abraham has been so effective for Chelsea despite his 26-goal season for Aston Villa in the Championship last campaign.
But the academy graduate has rewarded Lampard’s faith in him already this campaign with eight goals in the league.
Abraham recently commented: ‘I could not have asked for a better start with Chelsea.
‘Since I was a young boy, I’ve always had a dream that I would break into the first team one day. Not only have I done that, I am scoring goals. It’s going well.
‘It’s still early doors. I am happy with the way I’ve started. I’ve always believed in myself, it’s still early. I’ve got to keep on trying to help the team.
