Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte has reportedly decided that Tammy Abraham will be part of his long-term plans at Stamford Bridge.
Since Conte arrived at the club, the future of the young forward had been up for debate but it appears that the Italian showed faith in the England Under-21 international as early as last summer.
At the time, the attacker had been linked with a number of clubs in Europe, but it has been suggested that a transfer to Chelsea may have been on the cards until Conte planned for Abraham's future introduction to his squad.
The 19-year-old spent the season on loan at Bristol City, where he managed to net 26 goals in 48 appearances in all competitions.
Abraham is expected to spend another 12 months away from the West Londoners before potentially taking a place in the senior setup for the 2018-19 campaign.
