Tammy's eager to take his big opportunity

25th July 2017

Tammy Abraham admits his drive to succeed at Swansea City is fuelled by the opportunity to take his big chance in the Premier League.

The striker is spending the season with the Swans after agreeing a loan move from parent club Chelsea.

Abraham made two Premier League appearances off the bench for the Blues before scoring 26 goals during a temporary spell at Bristol City last season.

After impressing in the Championship, he now looks forward to a season of top-flight football with the Swans.

And it’s an opportunity he is desperate to take.

“I would love to build on last season and do it at the top level,” said the 19-year-old, who scored on his first Swans appearance during the victory over Richmond Kickers during the club’s tour in America.

“Everyone has seen me do it in the Championship, but I’d love to do it in the Premier League.”

At 6ft 3in, Abraham will certainly provide the Swans with some aerial threat.

But he feels he has plenty more to offer Paul Clement’s side.

“People will be surprised because I’m so tall but I do have quick feet and I have good pace to threaten defenders. Although I am tall I also like have the ball played into my feet,” added Abraham.

“I can hold up play too, so it will be good to show my overall game with Swansea and not just scoring goals.

“When the gaffer came round to my house he described what he wants from this season. It fits my style of play as well.

“It is a nice play to get your head down and really focus on your game. That’s what I want to do this season.”
