England forward Tammy Abraham turns down a contract offer from Chelsea, according to a report.

Tammy Abraham has reportedly turned down a contract offer from Chelsea.

The 22-year-old spent the 2018-19 campaign on loan with Aston Villa in the Championship before returning to Stamford Bridge, where he has established himself as the club's first-choice striker.

Abraham has struggled with an ankle problem in recent weeks but has scored 15 times in 34 appearances for Frank Lampard's side during the 2019-20 season.

According to The Mirror, Chelsea recently presented the England international with a contract offer, but the deal was turned down as the centre-forward wants parity with the likes of Callum Hudson-Odoi.

The 19-year-old is thought to have signed a new long-term deal worth £180,000 a week last year, and Abraham has allegedly made it clear that he wants to be among the club's highest earners.

The academy product will see his current deal with the Blues expire in June 2022.
