Rio Ferdinand sees parts of Chelsea legend Didier Drogba in Tammy Abraham's game and believes the young striker's career is progressing nicely.
The Blues forward scored the opening goal in Chelsea's 2-1 Champions League win over Lille on Wednesday, taking his tally to eight goals in 10 matches this season.
Speaking as a pundit for BT Sport , Ferdinand admittedd he was reminded of Drogba when watching Abraham play in France and believes the 22-year-old is displaying different features to his game as he develops.
"I saw elements in Tammy’s game that I haven’t seen as much as I would have liked to before," the ex-Manchester United defender said.
"His hold-up play, coming to the ball, bringing others into play. There were some balls that came into him that were Didier Drogba-esque.
"I think he’s developing nicely, he’s scoring goals, he’s scoring different types of goals and I think he’s a threat.
"This touch here (for his goal), when this ball comes to him, it’s a magnificent touch because it’s not the perfect ball. He adjusts his feet beautifully and the finish, the calmness to do it like that."
