CHELSEA boss Antonio Conte is ready to unleash Tammy Abraham on the Premier League next season.
The 19-year-old striker has been one of this season’s biggest success stories from the Blues’ now infamous loan system.
Abraham has scored a hugely impressive 22 goals in 40 appearances at Bristol City and broken into the England Under-21s set-up as well.
Chelsea have been heavily linked with a host of strikers as they prepare their plans for this summer’s transfer window, with Everton’s Romelu Lukaku tipped to rejoin the club.
But reports from Italy claim Conte’s first piece of business will be to promote Abraham to his first-team ranks.
Calciomercato claim the ex-Juventus boss has been convinced to give the youngster a chance by his ‘beautiful’ goals in the Championship this term.
It is said that he will not be sent out on loan again next season and instead play a prominent role in Conte’s Premier League plans.
Abraham made two top-flight appearances for Chelsea at the back end of last season, coming on as a late substitute in 1-1 draws against Liverpool and Leicester.
