Swansea City manager Paul Clement has made a bold claim about Chelsea youngster Tammy Abraham.
Abraham’s meteoric rise has been a joy to watch from a Chelsea fan’s perspective. It was clear to see that he was a cut above development football, and he needed experience in the professional footballing world in order to continue his development.
He took to the professional game like a fish to water, scoring 26 goals in his debut season with Bristol City. His stellar performances in the Championship earned him a step-up to the Premier League with Swansea City.
Swans manager Paul Clement, formerly of Chelsea of course, has placed his faith in Abraham – and that has been swiftly repaid. The 20-year-old has already scored four Premier League goals this season, and has been rewarded with his first ever call up for the England senior side, alongside another Chelsea youngster.

Clement believes that Abraham could cement his position in Gareth Southgate’s England squad, and could even go to Russia next summer!
The Swansea boss is quoted by the London Evening Standard saying:
“He has started well here and now he has taken that next step because just getting into that England squad is hard.”
“He has had a good attitude and worked hard and it (the 2018 World Cup) will be a possibility for him now.”
