Chelsea set to tie down trio of youngsters on new long-term deals

Tammy Abraham

The Guardian (opens in new tab) reports that the Blues have opened talks with the striker, as well as his team-mates Fikayo Tomori and Callum Hudson-Odoi, over new five-year deals.

Abraham, who scored a hat-trick against Wolves (opens in new tab) last weekend, will more than double his current £50,000-per-week wages with the extension.

The 21-year-old has scored seven goals in his last four games under Frank Lampard after spending last season on loan at Aston Villa (opens in new tab) in the Championship.

Defender Tomori has broken into the Chelsea (opens in new tab) first team this season, and netted his first goal for the club in the 5-2 victory over Wolves. He will also be rewarded with a new deal with his current contract due to expire in 2021.

The report adds that 18-year-old winger Hudson-Odoi is closing in on a new five-year deal worth more than £100,000 a week as he edges towards a return from injury. Negotiations have been ongoing for months, but the winger looks set to sign on the dotted line soon.
