Chelsea's Tammy Abraham targeted by Brentford on loan - sources
Highly rated Chelsea youngster Tammy Abraham is a loan target for Brentford, sources have told ESPN FC.
Abraham is regarded as one of the best young talents to emerge from Chelsea's youth system in recent years, with the club hopeful he will eventually make the step up to the first team.
The 18-year-old scored 41 goals across all age groups last season for Chelsea, helping them win the FA Youth Cup.
The powerful forward has established himself as a regular in the club's under-21s side this season and he scored seven goals in six games in the UEFA Youth League this term.
Chelsea are now considering sending Abraham out on loan so that he can gain some valuable first-team experience to aid his development.
Sources have told ESPN FC that a number of Football League clubs have expressed an interest in signing Abraham on loan, but Brentford are hoping to win the race for his signature.
Brentford enjoy a good working relationship with Chelsea and already have Blues midfielder John Swift on loan at Griffin Park.
