Back in the summer of 2019, when Chelsea were, courtesy of the FIFA imposed transfer ban, unable to add to their squad, the decision was made to give youth a chance.

Subsequently, we’ve seen the emergence of a core of the team that could serve the club well for many years to come with the likes of Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount, Fikayo Tomori, Reece James and Billy Gilmour grabbing their chance with both hands.

Throw into the mix the likes of Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Callum Hudson-Odoi and the future, when it comes to youth, certainly seems to be prosperous.

As the season has progressed, the club have acted smartly by ensuring that James, Mount, Tomori, Loftus-Cheek, Hudson-Odoi and Gilmour are all tied to the club on long term deals.

But, one name on our earlier list, that of Tammy Abraham, has still not put pen-to-paper on a new deal.

Abraham, who has finally proven that the #9 shirt isn’t jinxed at Chelsea with so many who have gone before him have failed to hit the net regularly, is, according to The Mirror reluctant to sign a new deal unless he is given salary parity with the top earners at the club.

With 15 goals to his name already this season, Abraham is in a strong bargaining position, but, it remains to be seen whether a deal can be struck in the near future which suits all parties or whether it will drag on to a messy conclusion.

But what are your feelings regarding the above subject matter?

Should Abraham be given salary parity with the top-earners at the club or does he still have to earn that right?

  • Would like to keep him but I feel he should have spent this season on the bench coming on and learning from giroud whose hold up play is supreme tammy has a lot to learn for me don’t get me wrong he’s good but not yet the finished article so pay should reflect this some youngsters are getting ahead of themselves I’m not convinced with CHO pay scale needs to do a lot more in games for me for that pay

  • Tammy got away to a good start but recently he has been a bit like bambi on ice, he keeps on falling over and has scored two goals in his last 15 to 20 appearances, not worth paying the money he wants. HCO is not worth the money either, he has struggled with injuries.
    Stop thinking about the money Tammy concentrate on your form, you could find yourself out of the team.

  • Not convinced by him yet, not worthy of a top salary, he can re negotiate when he scores more than he misses, he is no drogba by a long shot, if he won’t sign cash in, he can be replaced by many in Europe at a lot less cost .

  • Have him on a good salary with the opportunity to earn the highest based on performance (variable pay)
