Abraham’s new suitor
As shown above Tammy Abraham looks to have an additional suitor to the already well-known intrigue of Arsenal and Atalanta.
With the transfer window merry-go-round in full swing and Lukaku set to join Chelsea they are looking to replace the Belgian with Roma forward Edin Dzeko.
This will then leave an opening in Jose Mourinho’s front line and he would like to replace the Bosnian international with Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham who will be left with little opportunities after the Lukaku return.

Broja set for EPL loan
Chelsea are however set to allow one of their young prodigies to leave the club like so many before him.

Understand Chelsea are in advanced talks with Southampton over a season-long loan move for Armando Broja. Discussions have been held over the last couple of days.
Saints looking for reinforcements after Danny Ings departure. Would be a big loan for Broja.
