Former Leeds United Carlton Palmer has exclusively told This is Futbol that Tammy Abraham needs to leave Chelsea this summer and suggested a move to Newcastle.

The striker has fallen out of favour since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel, starting just twice in the Premier League, and was hauled off at half-time in each of those games.

Would you ever want to see Jose Mourinho manage Newcastle?

Despite his lack of minutes, Abraham ended the season as Chelsea’s joint-top goalscorer with 12, and that came without a single appearance in the Champions League knockout stages or the latter stages of their FA Cup run.

But his Stamford Bridge future is now in serious doubt, especially with Chelsea looking to bring in another striker to bolster their frontline, with the likes of Harry Kane and Erling Haaland reportedly on their wish-list.

Newcastle's all-time top Premier League goalscorer is Alan Shearer but how many goals did he score for the club?

6 ft 3 Abraham has been linked with several Premier League clubs, including Aston Villa and West Ham, but Palmer believes a move to St James’ Park would suit the 23-year-old.

Newcastle currently have four strikers on their books, but only Callum Wilson has proved to be a regular on the scoresheet and could do with some help.

Palmer told This is Futbol:

“There’s a lot of clubs that Tammy would suit – Newcastle are another club that would suit him, he just needs to get out to play.”
