Sources: Aston Villa, West Ham and Arsenal told Abraham wants £130,000-a-week deal to quit Chelsea
Arsenal, Aston Villa, West Ham and other top clubs have been told Tammy Abraham wants £130,000-a-week to quit Chelsea this summer, Football Insider can exclusively reveal.
The striker, 23, is on the radar of leading Premier League and European teams with Chelsea ready to cash in on him.
But a recruitment source has told Football Insider that a potential deal is being held up by Abraham’s vast salary demands.
The England international is seeking a huge uplift on his current Chelsea wage, which is £50,000-a-week.
That is a major stumbling block to the clubs interested in Abraham.
They include not only his former loan club Villa but also West Ham and Arsenal as well as leading German and Spanish clubs.

Football Insider revealed earlier this month (July 10th) the Irons are the frontrunners for Abraham’s capture.
The England international is valued at £40million by Chelsea although it is expected a £35million bid could seal a deal.
Abraham currently has two years left on his current terms at Stamford Bridge.
However, Chelsea are willing to cash in after the striker fell out of favour under Thomas Tuchel.
He played just seven times following the German’s appointment back in January.
His potential availability has attracted interest from all across the Premier League as well as further afield.
West Ham are keen to sign Abraham as competition for Michail Antonio after selling Sebastien Haller in January.
The Chelsea striker has scored 26 goals in 89 Premier League appearances to date.
He has also played six times for England, with one goal to his name.
