England Under-21s manager Aidy Boothroyd is adamant that Tammy Abraham, who is currently on loan at Swansea, will become a great player, reports the Standard.

The 20-year-old grabbed a goal and an assist against Scotland U21s in a 3-1 win for the England U21s at the Riverside Stadium on Friday night.

Abraham has scored three goals in all competitions for Swansea in what is an important season for the youngster, and the Standard quote Boothroyd, who sees a bright future for the striker:

“Everybody buzzes off him, he’s got a really good chance of developing into a really good player.”

Boothroyd has managed several England youth teams since 2014, so he knows a special talent when he sees one.

If Chelsea fail to sign a third-choice striker in the next transfer window, a recall for Abraham could well be on the cards if he continues to show progression between now and January.

However, from a player’s perspective, it may be best for Abraham to stay at the Welsh club under former Blues coach Paul Clement and continue in his development.
