Reports: Tammy demanding huge contract to extend Chelsea stay

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham is holding out for a huge contract offer before extending his contract at the club. 

The young forward has enjoyed a good season so far and feels he has done enough to warrant a huge payday.

According to reports, Abraham wants a new £180k-a-week deal, which will take him level with Callum Hudson-Odoi who signed a new contract towards the end of last year. 

Abraham has impressively led the lines for Frank Lampard's charges, scoring 13 goals in 25 Premier League appearance, which is a fair return considering he was out for a number of matches with an injury. 

Negotiations are yet to kick off again after the initial talks at the start of the season, but the club is understood to be willing to negotiate. 

The Blues will most likely be in the market for a new striker once the window swings open, with Olivier Giroud, set to leave thereby creating room upfront. 

Abraham is not the only player holding out for a bumper deal, with Willian also thought to be locked in negotiations over a contract extension. 

The Brazilian is thought to be asking for a three-year deal, while the club is said to be willing to offer him a two-year contract.
