Chelsea are close to agreeing a new contract extension for Tammy Abraham, according to the reliable Fabrizio Romano.

The 22-year old has 3 years left on his current deal but Chelsea are confident of increasing that by 2 more years.

The Blues have been getting a number of key players tied down to long term deals in recent months and they have plans to do more.

Callum Hudson-Odoi recently committed his long term future to the club as a whole host of academy talents are enjoying new extensions.

Frank Lampard has come in and given opportunities to a number of the youngsters and this is a great time for them, with the belief that they can finally get their chances to make it in the first team fold.

Abraham is one of the big success stories from this so far at Chelsea this season, being the clubs top goal scorer and continues to lead the line.
