Tammy Abraham burst onto the scene at the age of 17 with his 41-goal season at mostly U18 level last season, and has continued to score freely at the U19 and U21 levels this season as well.  There's good reason to believe that he's ready for the next step in his career. Like Dominic Solanke, who was similarly prolific in the youth ranks and was subsequently loaned out to Vitesse Arnhem at the beginning of this season, it's likely that Chelsea will find Abraham a suitable loan as well.

The striker has no shortage of suitors, with rumours of Championship club and London neighbours Brentford wanting Abraham on loan next season surfacing two months ago already. Most recently, according to Richard Cawley of South London Today, fellow Championship (now League 1; they were relegated from the second tier this season) club Charlton Athletic have also set their sights on a loan.  He could also follow the path that many others had taken and end up at Vitesse in the Eredivisie next season as well.

One thing seems certain however: Tammy Abraham will be part yet another massive loan brigade next season, looking to eventually take that ever-elusive step into the Chelsea first-team.
