Despite interest from Southampton, Cardiff and West Ham for Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham, the 20-year-old is set to stay at Stamford Bridge this season.

It was expected Abraham would leave Stamford Bridge on loan this season but according to the Mirror, he is now expected to take on an increased role at Chelsea this season.

The Mirror claim Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has been impressed with Abraham’s performances during pre-season.

Abraham will be in competition with Michy Batshuayi, Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud for the centre-forward role at Chelsea.
