Super Eagles Target Abraham Eyes 20+ EPL Goals For Swansea

Nigerian-born Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham says he is targeting more than 20 goals in the 2017/18 Premier League season.

The 19-year old striker who has been a target of the Nigeria Football Federation to play for the country has been loaned out to Swansea City this summer for next Premier League season.

"I can't wait, I'm so excited right now," Abraham told the BBC.

"I came here to score goals and help the team as much as I can… it's good to score goals, it lifts your confidence going into the season especially and I'm looking forward to it.

"I'm going to prove to the gaffer [Swansea manager Paul Clement] why he brought me in… and I'm going to do my best and try as hard as I can.
"I just want to do the best I can and hopefully to beat last year's goal tally, by all means that's what I'll go for.

"It's a fantastic squad and I'm playing with players I grew up watching, so it's a dream come true.

"I have to show the fans what I'm truly made of and what kind of player I am.
"I score goals but I've got good feet, good pace as well, so I would like to show the fans and help the team as much as I can while I'm here."

Abraham has been one of the young players Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr is hoping to cap for the Super Eagles ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup and 2019 African Cup of Nations.

The youngster, who scored 23 goals in 41 games for Bristol City in the second-tier Championship last season, is eligible for Nigeria through his parents despite playing for England in the European U-21 Championship in July.
