Chelsea are close to agreeing new five-year contracts with emerging stars Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori, according to reports.
Chelsea striker Abraham has enjoyed a superb start to the season, scoring eight goals in ten appearances in all competitions.
The 22-year-old made his first-team debut back in 2016 but has now cemented his place in Frank Lampard’s squad having impressed on loan at Aston Villa last term. The young forward has bagged seven goals from seven Premier League games this season and Frank Lampard is keen to get him tied down as he sees him as a huge part of his long-term plans.
The 21-year-old Tomori has also impressed for the Blues this season and was hailed as “outstanding” by Lampard following Chelsea’s Champions League win over Lille on Wednesday.
Both Abraham and Tomori appear to have big futures ahead of them at Stamford Bridge and Sky Sports say they are close to agreeing new long-term deals. But having made four Premier League starts already this season and making his Champions League debut at Lille on Wednesday, the Blues are keen to reward him for his recent form.
The new deal would be a significant increase on his current salary given his elevated position at the club.
