Chelsea center forward Tammy Abraham has revealed how Ronaldo de Lima influenced his decision to remain at the Bridge, despite offers from other club. The youngster returned from relegated Swansea where he netted five times last season.
Prior to his loan spell with Swansea, he set Bristol city on fire with a staggering 26 goals in all competition. The England prodigy seems determine to survive at Chelsea where he came up through the academy.
