Abraham out of favour
Chelsea, barring an altogether peculiar 5-2 hammering at the hands of West Brom, have looked pretty solid under Thomas Tuchel.
The Blues have lost just twice under the German and are currently just a 0-0 draw away from a Champions League final, with an FA Cup final clash with Leicester still to come later this month.
However, whilst the majority of the club’s stars have benefited from Tuchel’s arrival, Tammy Abraham has not.
The 23-year-old remains the Blues’ top scorer in all competitions this season. Yet Tuchel appears to favour all of Olivier Giroud, Timo Werner and Kai Havertz over the hitman.
Granted, Abraham has endured some injury issues since Tuchel took over. But even since recovering full fitness, the English international has continued to struggle for game-time.
Even on Saturday when Tuchel clearly put out a weaker starting eleven vs Fulham, Abraham was still only limited to 14 minutes of action.
AC Milan interested in Abraham
In turn, with the Englishman continuing to find himself out of favour under Tuchel, it is not all that surprising to see his name linked with a potential transfer.
With Michail Antonio the Hammers only real striking option at present, it is quite clear David Moyes and co. need some reinforcements up top, especially if they secure Europa League football next term.
So, Abraham would of course no doubt represent a solid buy for them. However, according to the Evening Standard:
AC Milan could offer Tammy Abraham a way out of Chelsea — delivering a blow to West Ham’s hopes of landing the England striker.
It is added that the Italian outfit are one of a host of clubs who have been put on alert by Tuchel’s handling of Abraham and are monitoring his situation ahead of the summer.
