Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has said to the London Evening Standard that he was telling Ross Barkley that he thinks Tottenham Hotspur’’s Harry Kane is the best striker in the world.

The Chelsea forward has actually outscored his Tottenham counterpart over the Premier League season so far, and is now set to train alongside him for England.

And Abraham is excited to learn from Kane, as he thinks the Three Lions’ captain is such an impressive finisher.

Abraham said: “For me, he’s the greatest striker in the world. I would put him up there. I was talking to [Chelsea and England midfielder] Ross Barkley the other day and said I’ve never seen a finisher like him.

 

“Ross was saying him, Jermain Defoe, and all sorts. But when you look at Harry Kane, if he gets a chance in the box, nine times out of 10, it’s a goal. So I’ll go there learn off him and hopefully be like him.”

Abraham has shown an impressive level of finishing at Chelsea himself this season, and took his total eight goals in eight games with a strike against Southampton.

Kane, meanwhile, has kept a credible scoring record at Tottenham, despite his side’s poor form.

Kane has netted five goals in the Premier League this term, and is expected to start both of England’s next two games.

Gareth Southgate’s men take on the Czech Republic and Bulgaria, as they look to continue their strong start to Euro 2020 qualification.
