Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has turned down the offer of a revised new contract from the club.
The 22 year old academy graduate, who is currently sidelined with an ankle injury, has scored 13 times for the club this season in 25 appearances, and, despite the fact that he has two years left on his current deal, Chelsea are keen to secure his long-term future.
However, he has turned down their latest offer and is holding out for parity with some of the biggest earners at the club.
In particular, the player’s agent are referencing the £120,000 a week awarded which was awarded to Callum Hudson-Odoi when he signed his new five year deal.
The West London club have already tie-down a number of their clutch of promising young players to new long-term deals, including Mason Mount, Reece James, Fikayo Tomori, and Billy Gilmour, who made his Premier League debit in Sunday;s win over Everton.
