TAMMY ABRAHAM has activated a one-year contract extension in his contract to ease doubts over his Chelsea future, according to reports.

The Blues striker had an initial £50,000-a-week deal until the summer of 2022.

Chelsea chiefs were fearing that the 22-year-old would delay putting pen-to-paper on a new deal meaning they could have been backed into a corner in 12 month’s time.



But the Telegraph report how Abraham’s contract was automatically extended until 2023, including receiving a pay rise, after he reached a certain amount of games and goals.

Chelsea have made a big effort in tying their young stars down to long-term contracts with Callum Hudson-Odoi, Reece James, Billy Gilmour and Mason Mount four notable names committing their futures.

Abraham has made 30 Premier League appearances this season, scoring 14 goals.

But he has struggled to cement a first-team spot since the turn of the year with boss Frank Lampard favouring Olivier Giroud to lead the line.

Abraham is likely to find himself back on the bench next season with Chelsea landing Timo Werner in a £53million deal.

The Germany star will be at the forefront of Lampard’s plans having bagged an impressive 28 Bundesliga goals this season.

Abraham will also be competing with Giroud who signed a one-year contract extension in May.

But he’ll be desperate to get enough gametime under his belt with Euro 2021 looming next summer.
