Tammy Abraham’s market value has rocketed as a result of his success this season, according to his manager Lee Johnson, the Daily Star is reporting.
Arriving at Bristol City in the sumemr on a season long loan deal as a relatively unknown quantity at Championship level, Abraham has exceeded all expectations and is currently firing the Robins to safety in the second tier.
The England under-21 international is currently joint second in the scoring charts in the Championship with 22 goals – placing him level with Newcastle’s Dwight Gayle and Glenn Murray of Brighton.
The towering centre forward trails Chris Wood of Leeds United by 3 goals in the race for the Championship golden boot.
His reputation has grown this season and his manager at Ashton Gate Lee Johnson believes that this has increased his market value when he returns to Chelsea in the summer if the Premier League giants want to sell him.
“He’s been a fantastic signing for us.
“We appreciate it from Chelsea, but we’ve done well for Tammy and Chelsea.
“The market value has shot up on him, if they ever want to sell him, but also we’ve helped develop him.
“That only comes from Tammy being such a good lad and working as hard as he has.
“This will be an unbelievable learning curve for him.”
