Tammy Abraham says he wanted to embrace the challenge of breaking Chelsea's number nine curse.

A number of flop signings in recent years have worn the jersey, including Fernando Torres, Mateja Kezman and Alvaro Morata.

After spending last season on loan at Aston Villa, Abraham has scored ten Premier League goals and hopes to make the number nine his very own for years to come.



"We talked about the play-off final, just me giving him and Jody Morris a bit of stick, but our first proper conversation was him asking if I wanted the number nine shirt," Abraham told the club's website about his first chat with Frank Lampard.

"He told me to think about it and not to rush the decision but I had already made my mind up on the spot!

"I heard a lot of things about the cursed number nine shirt at Chelsea but I was willing to take that upon myself and change it.

It's a dream come true for me and in the next 15 years I want to create a legacy so I can sit back when I retire and know I made myself proud as Chelsea's number nine."
