Chelsea star Abraham rejects latest contract offer and wants same parity with other top players before committing future – The Sun

TAMMY ABRAHAM has reportedly turned down Chelsea’s latest contract offer.

The 22-year-old is top scorer for the Blues this season with 15 after being handed a chance to impress by Frank Lampard.

He has seen several other academy graduates commit their futures to the West London club with the likes of Reece James, Mason Mount, Fikayo Tomori, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Billy Gilmour all penning fresh deals.

Callum Hudson-Odoi was another who received a bumper pay rise.

And the Daily Mirror claims that Abraham “is determined to hold out for a deal around that level” – with his fellow England international believed to be pocketing around £180,000-a-week.

The towering frontman still has two years left on his Stamford Bridge contract.

Abraham has enjoyed an impressive breakthrough campaign after finally being given a shot in the Chelsea first-team.

And that form has led to a call-up for the Three Lions as he aims to secure a spot in Gareth Southgate’s squad for the Euros.

However, his fine campaign has been curtailed in recent weeks due to an ankle problem.

That has led to Olivier Giroud leading the line instead for Lampard.

Chelsea welcome Everton to the capital today as they look to strengthen their grip on the top four.
