Tammy Abraham has reportedly turned down a contract extension offer from Chelsea because it does not reflect what he feels he should be earning.
The 22-year-old who has since established himself as the Blues’ first choice striker after a loan stint at Aston Villa during 2018-19 campaign, wants to be paid like the other top stars before committing his future to Stamford Bridge.
Abraham has seen a string of players pledge their allegiance to the Blues with Reece James, Mason Mount, Fikayo Tomori, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Billy Gilmour all signing up for the long-term.
However, the 22-year-old has also seen the likes of Callum Hudson-Odoi cash in big-style in the past 12 months and is determined to hold out for a deal around that level.
Hudson-Odoi agreed a new contract with Chelsea last September which was worth an estimated £180,000-a-week.
Abraham has also struggled with an ankle problem in recent weeks but has scored 15 times in 34 appearances during the 2019-20 season.
