Chelsea’s new superstar: ‘I’m going to copy Diego Costa’s game to become the best’

TAMMY ABRAHAM has his sights fixed on breaking into both the Chelsea and England first-teams.

The 19-year-old striker has been hugely impressive during his season-long loan spell with Championship side Bristol City this term.

He has scored 13 goals in 26 appearances for Lee Johnson’s side and has also scored twice in as many games for the England Under-21s.

Abraham looks set for a massive future in the game and he has set out some lofty career targets as he looks to kick-on from his fine start to life as a professional.

“Playing at the top level in the Premier League — that’s where I strive to be,” he told the London Evening Standard.

“England Under-21s is just one step below the first team so I’m going to keep striving to be the best and hopefully I’ll get a call-up.”

Abraham is excited to back to Chelsea at the end of the season and start training alongside the likes of Diego Costa again.

He said: “Wherever you go you have to learn off players who you play with and who you are up against.

“Diego Costa is a good example.

“He’s doing very well and he’s arguably one of the best strikers in the world so I have to see what he does and add it to my game.”

On his loan stint with Bristol City, Abraham added: “It’s very challenging.

“You just have to adapt and you have to get used to playing game after game.

“It’s about resting and what you do off the pitch that affects what you do on it. I just have to keep adapting.

“The experience has given me a new belief.”
