Chelsea boss, Thomas Tuchel, has offered advice to striker, Tammy Abraham, amid transfer interest linking the England international with a move to Aston Villa this summer.
Abraham’s future at Chelsea is uncertain after he fell down the pecking order of strikers in Tuchel’s squad.
The 23-year-old made 16 Premier League appearances under former Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, this season but has made just 4 since Tuchel took charge at Stamford Bridge.
He is currently behind Kai Havertz, Timo Werner and Olivier Giroud in Tuchel’s choice of strikers in recent weeks.
Reacting to the development, Tuchel urged Abraham not to worry about getting into Chelsea’s first team, adding that he needs to be fit first and take it step by step through good training performances.
“Of course, he [Tammy] needs to be fit, that’s correct. Then to take it to step by step, through good training performances and to fight his way back. The way back is maybe for him to be a substitute and be hungry and full of quality training.
“These are the next steps, but now is not the moment to worry about the first XI, as he has been out for many games, unfortunately too many games,” Tuchel said as quoted by Birmingham Live.
Abraham spent the 2018/2019 season at Aston Villa and propelled them to the English Premier League with his goal-scoring exploits
