Reports claim that City are monitoring the situation as tensions grow between the 22-year-old and the Blues. Abraham, who is looking to establish himself in the England set up after scoring 14 goals in his first season so far. Lampard has been vindicated and rewarded for his bravery in giving young academy graduates such as Abraham, Fikayo Tomori, Reece James, Mason Mount and Callum Hudson-Odoi a chance in the first team this term.
But there could be trouble ahead. While Abraham still has two years to run on his current deal, it is believed he wants a new long term contract on the same terms as Hudson-Odoi. The teenager penned a new five-year deal in the summer after intense speculation linking him with Bayern Munich. He currently earns £180,000-per-week, and Abraham has been looking on in envy.
With Sergio Agüero getting older, City could be on the lookout for a new striker to rival Gabriel Jesus. Abraham would fit the bill as a homegrown player with his best years ahead of him, but would surely cost a huge amount of money given that City are direct rivals to Lampard’s men.
