Tammy Abraham Names The Chelsea African Legend He Wants To Emulate
Tammy Abraham wants to follow in the footsteps of Ivory Coast legend Didier Drogba and become the top striker at Chelsea.

The number nine revealed that he's inspired by his childhood hero Drogba who is the highest scoring foreigner in the history of Chelsea with 164 goals across two spells at Stamford Bridge.

Abraham has enjoyed a fine start to the new Premier League season with four goals in four appearances and has usurped the experienced striker Olivier Giroud to a place in the starting line-up.

''I have so many stories from when I was younger watching him, growing up watching such a talented striker,'' Abraham said to The Mirror.

"I've always wanted to be like him, always hungry to score goals.

''Just looking at him he had that appearance about him. And I've always wanted to add that to my game.

''So to follow in his footsteps (as the club’s main striker) is always nice''.

Abraham will be hoping to continue his fine goalscoring form when Chelsea face Wolves on Saturday, September 14.
