Ian Holloway backs Tammy Abraham to make an impression at Chelsea

Former Queens Park Rangers manager Ian Holloway has said that he is excited to see Tammy Abraham make an impression with Chelsea next season. The England international struggled during a Premier League stint with Swansea City between 2017 and 2018 and that meant that he was loaned out to the Championship with Aston Villa last term.

The move worked out perfectly for the Villains and the striker himself, who scored 26 goals in the Championship and Holloway is looking forward to the striker making a mark with the Blues, he told TalkSPORT: “I’m so excited because I can see Tammy Abraham playing for Chelsea. I was fuming the other day when he was subbed for the England Under-21s.

“OK, when he went to Swansea it didn’t work for him because it was his first season in the Premier League, but he’s ready now. The boy is an immense talent.He was the second-highest goalscorer in the Championship last season and he’s the record goalscorer in their youth set-up. So I’m delighted. I think he’s ready for it and it’s got to happen now.”
