Tammy Abraham will leave Stamford Bridge this summer.
The Chelsea academy graduate has not been a regular under Thomas Tuchel last season and has been linked with a return to Aston Villa this summer.
The German coach won’t mind if Abraham exits Stamford Bridge this transfer window.
“I don’t think he’s the top scorer since I arrived,” Tuchel said of the 23-year-old back in April. “I can only judge what I see. I saw a bright young man in front of me. I saw a guy who is self-confident, who has a lot of talent.
“But it cannot be that in a period of such good results that suddenly the guys who don’t play are the winners. This is not logical to me. He was for some weeks not available, so is it now the moment to do crazy stuff and try things?
“If you just look at the data, you will say: ‘OK, he’s the top scorer.’ If you look at the data since we are here, it will maybe tell you a different story.
“Tammy had a bit of a rough time. He was twice substituted for tactical reasons at half-time. He could not have the impact he demands from himself and we wish from him.”
