“Abraham will have a role to play next season “

Timo Werner has being snapped up by Chelsea while Olivier Giroud who seems to be Chelsea’s first choice striker has signed a Contract extension.

Former Chelsea Goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer has been impressed by what Tammy Abraham has brought to the Chelsea cause this season.

22-year old Abraham is the blues highest goal scorer this season with 17 goals and Schwarzer believes he will still have a role to play next season despite Werner’s arrival.

“Seventeen goals he's scored now, he scored again [versus Liverpool], I know he had a great first half of the season and he's dropped off a little bit but I kind of expected that with the younger players.

“ I don't think Mason Mount's playing at the same level he was earlier in the season, he just doesn't have that same spark.

“Going forward Chelsea have always had an abundance of top talent and I think having that striker that scores you an abundance of goals, you can argue 17 goals for Abraham is a phenomenal return.

“I think that's a very good return. In terms of Timo Werner coming in, he can play through the middle or also as one of the wider players, interchanging between positions.

“I think you'll find Werner likes to sometimes drift out towards the left side a little bit and cut in.

“I think the number of games they're going to have, the rotation they'll be implementing, I think they do need quality and strength in depth.

“Chelsea have always been looking to improve, to bring in big-name players and they're going for young and up-and-coming players but ones who have performed at the highest level already and done very well.

“It's exciting times for Chelsea. Let's not forget Chelsea are going to lose Pedro, they're probably going to lose Willian. 

You've got Ziyech coming in, whether it's Kai Havertz coming in, Werner, they're going to need extra bodies to replace them.

“Chelsea have already been proactive and have started to already bring in those replacements.”
