Swansea midfielder Leon Britton has compared Swansea loanee Tammy Abraham with Jermain Defoe, the Daily Mail reports.
Abraham helped his team to a valuable 2-0 win against Huddersfield Town on Saturday, scoring both goals.
The 35-year-old played with Defoe at youth level for West Ham and sees similarities in both players’ games. The midfielder also insists that Abraham can make it at Chelsea, as the Daily Mail reports.
Britton is quoted by the Daily Mail saying:
“Jermain has scored over 160 goals in the Premier League and Tammy can go on and have a great career like him.
I don’t see any reason why he can’t go back to Chelsea, break through and have a long career there.”
With the Blues being questionably short in striker options, there may be a small chance of a recall back to Stamford Bridge for the 20-year-old.
Michy Batshuayi’s performance against Crystal Palace yesterday was certainly an indication that Alvaro Morata is manager Antonio Conte’s number one striker.
The Belgian was frustrated as he was subbed off for Pedro in the 57th minute in the 2-1 defeat.
This was complete contrast to the attitude Abraham has shown since his move to South Wales where he has scored five goals so far this season.
