Former Liverpool player Steve Nicol has claimed that Timo Werner's possible move to Chelsea could spell the end for Tammy Abraham.
The 22-year-old has enjoyed a breakthrough first season for the Blues, registering 15 goals in 34 appearances.
However, Nicol believes that Werner's arrival to Frank Lampard's side could mean the end of Abraham's impressive run.
The ex-defender told ESPN: "I don't believe Frank and Chelsea are going to change the way they play and you have to say that signing Werner would spell the end for Tammy Abraham. I mean goodness knows what is going through his head.
"Allegedly Frank has been telling Werner that he is going to build the team around him so you don't build your team around a wide midfielder. You build through the spine so that means straight away that Tammy Abraham is in trouble."
Chelsea are thought to be on the brink of signing the 24-year-old, who has scored 25 league goals this season.
