Kevin Oghenetega Tamaraebi Bakumo-Abraham (known as Tammy Abraham), the hardworking England international, 22, has scored 13 goals in 25 Premier League appearances for Chelsea.
And Abraham, who has been sidelined with an ankle injury since the start of February, wants to be on equal terms with fellow Blues youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi.
Abraham believes he deserves to bank the same figures as his teammate.
It’s believed talks are yet to resume after initial negotiations earlier in the campaign.
But another factor in Abraham’s decision to pen a new deal is Chelsea’s pursuit of a new striker.
Also, Olivier Giroud, 33, looks set to leave on a free transfer this summer, while 26-year-old Michy Batshuayi is expected to be sold.
