The Serie A club was considering Tammy Abraham in the summer.
Italian Serie A club AC Milan were reportedly interested in the services of Chelsea star Tammy Abraham in the summer transfer window but later on changed their tune.
According to Tuttomercatoweb, Abraham was actually offered to AC Milan in the summer transfer window, but they eventually rejected the opportunity to sign him due to his lack of experience in top-flight football.
The former England U-21 star had involved himself in 33 games in the Premier League and scoring five goals before he was introduced to Chelsea’s first team this season.
Abraham spent last season on loan at Championship side Aston Villa, helping them achieve promotion back to the top flight with 26 league goals. Given the fact that Olivier Giroud and Michy Batshuayi are currently there, it seemed as though Abraham may face an uncertain future at the club over the summer.
However, the youngster is now the second top goalscorer in the Premier League boasting 7 goals from 6 matches played; which puts him ahead of Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang, Mohamed Salah and Harry Kane.
The 21-year-old is set to be handed a five-year contract with the Blues following his impressive exploits at the start of the 2019/20 campaign – the new deal will come with doubled wages in the range of £100,000-a-week.
