Tammy Abraham feels ready to establish himself at Chelsea this season.
The striker missed Friday’s friendly against Kawasaki Frontale with tonsillitis but is fully fit again and determined to impress with the Blues this season having spent the past three years out on loan
“I am more ready than ever for the season to start,” the 21-year-old stressed to chelseafc.com.
“I had a good season last season, and now I am here at the club I have always dreamed of playing for. I just have to take my chance.
“Being here since the age of six there is no better opportunity to try and graft and work hard for a place in the team. With the new manager in charge all things are looking possible, so it gives the young lads and a lot of the players a good chance to believe.
“It’s always nice to have a manager that keeps in contact with not just the senior players but the young players as well, so it’s a massive opportunity for us.
“I have just got to work hard in training,’ added Abraham. ‘The manager has told me what he likes and what he wants me to continue doing, and improve the other side of my game as well.
“He knows I can score goals and I have got the speed, and the defensive side I need to work hard at for the team. Whenever I get that chance on the pitch and the training pitch I have to grab it with two hands.”
