Chelsea on-loan to Aston Villa and Nigeria-born forward Tammy Abraham believes he is ready to lead the Chelsea attack next season after leading Aston Villa back to English Premier top flight.
The 21-year-old scored 26 goals on loan at Aston Villa this season, helping them reach the play-off final where they clinched promotion against Derby County at Wembley.
He said: “The aim is to be at the highest level and playing the best football, and if Chelsea say they need me there I will put 100 per cent in. Every player wants to start. Obviously if it is at Chelsea, a team like Chelsea is always difficult because they have got world-class players.
‘It is always going to be difficult to bring in youngsters and bring in people like myself – it is a big role.
‘But for me, it is about believing in myself and just keep doing what I do.
‘First of all I just need to enjoy myself with the boys before I think about the future.
‘I have got the Euro Under-21s coming up as well so I have to focus on that. You can never say never. You never know what could happen.
‘I have developed a lot as a player. Coming here it was always tough, there was always a lot of pressure.
‘People were questioning if I could score the same amount of goals as I did last time. I just believed in myself,” he enthused.
