Chelsea to upgrade deals of several of young players

Chelsea are planning to upgrade the deals of several of their young players.

The Sun says he club are making a concerted effort to ensure a trio of other youngsters are tied down to long contracts.

Tammy Abraham's impressive start to the new season, which has seen him score four Premier League goals in four games, is likely to be rewarded with improved terms now he is a recognised first team player.

There are also talks planned with defender Fikayo Tomori, who has forced his way into the first team squad this season under manager Frank Lampard.

And teenage right-back Reece James is another they want to hand a long-term contract to, believing he will establish himself as a first team star this season.

James has missed the opening month of the season through injury but there is a belief he will soon be challenging for a starting role in the side.
