The player, who has been the subject of an international eligibility tussle between England and Nigeria has stated that he wants to go back to Chelsea and prove he can play for the Premier League champions.

Speaking recently, Makelele said as quoted by Evening Standard, “He’s young and he has time on his side. He wants to be one of the best strikers in the Premier League. He gets an example in the way Drogba and Eto’o play. But to do that he must work like they did. “Can he play for Chelsea? I hope so. He needs to be successful with Swansea first and learn more and more to come back and push for Antonio Conte’s team. It’s going to be difficult. He needs to adapt very well but we will push him. But he has to show the ambition to reach the top.” he added.

Abraham scored 26 times for Bristol City last season and proved he can mix it in the rough league that is the Championship. He is fast, tall, can hold the ball very well and has a good shot in him. He has great potential to be one of the best strikers in the English game, and has the right guidance at Swansea to make it to the very top.
