An ex-Blues star believes the striker must call time on his Stamford Bridge career for his own good.
Tammy Abraham will not be a part of Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea plans for the next season and therefore should leave the club, according to Tony Cascarino.
Abraham was hardy part of Tuchel’s plans for Chelsea last season as he was able to feature a mere seven times in total after the German manager’s appointment in January.
Reports continue to link the player with a move away from the club but not necessarily away from London, with Arsenal and Tottenham said to be interested in the Blues academy graduate.
“Tammy is a player who a lot of clubs will want. Whether it’s a loan deal, I’m pretty sure Chelsea will want a big deal elsewhere,” Cascarino told talkSPORT.
“They’ll probably want £40m or £50m for him, which might be a big ask in the present climate. But Tammy’s got to play. It’s a big issue if you just sit it out. He’s ended up going down the pecking order.
“He wasn’t even in some of the squads at the end of the season was he. So it’s obvious that Tuchel isn’t going to have him as part of his plans, certainly his first 11.”
