Chelsea striker Abraham eager to learn from England captain Kane

Tammy Abraham says he will look to pick up a few new tricks off Harry Kane in the England set-up.

Chelsea striker Abraham has lit up the Premier League this season with eight goals, good for joint-top goalscorer in the competition.

As a back-up for Tottenham star Kane, Abraham admits he'll be watching the superstar with a close eye.

He said: "Harry's someone I've grown up watching. For me he's the best striker in the world.

"I was always excited to come here, to watch him train, train with him, and hopefully maybe play with him as well.

"He was always going to be my idol. Not just here. I'm here to stay, to do well, the best I can.

"I'm here because right now I'm doing so well, joint top goalscorer in the league. Hopefully I'll get my chance and take it.

"I've come here to steal ideas. I've come to learn the other parts of Harry's game, add it to my game as well.

"You see his finishing, left foot, right foot, just take that into my game so when I go back I can work on myself and practice."
