Derby County are interested in loaning Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham, as per a report by Bristol Live. 

The highly-rated striker could leave Chelsea again on loan this summer for more first-team experience and is now a target for Championship side Derby County.

Their new manager, Frank Lampard, is hoping to use his contacts with the Premier League side to lure Abraham to Pride Park for his first season in management. Lampard is keen to bolster his squad over the coming weeks and wants to kick-start his recruitment with landing Abraham.

Abraham, who has made 2 caps for the England national team, has played in the Championship before and was prolific for Bristol City in the 2016/17 season. He played 48 games for the Robins in all competitions and scored an impressive 23 goals.

This form earned him a loan move to Swansea City in the Premier League last season. However, he could not prevent the Swans from relegated from the top flight but still bagged 8 goals for them in all competitions, with 5 coming in the league.

Abraham is a handful in the Championship and signing him would be a statement of intent by Derby County. The Rams are hoping to bounce back from their Play-Off disappointment from the last campaign and their fans want another promotion push under Lampard.

Lampard’s links with Chelsea will come in handy for Derby this summer and he will be looking to bring in some of the Blues’ young talent this summer. Tammy Abraham could be first through the door.
