Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham is reportedly ready to commit his international future to England if he is selected by Gareth Southgate for the upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers against Czech Republic and Bulgaria.

The Chelsea striker has made two appearances for the Three Lions but remains eligible to play for Nigeria as both matches were international friendlies. However, that would no longer be the case if he is picked by Southgate and plays in a qualifying match later this month.

England boss Gareth Southgate is expected to name his squad for England’s double-header on Thursday with Abraham waiting to see whether or not his good form for Chelsea will be enough to earn him a place in the squad. This is according to a report by the Telegraph.

Nigeria have been attempting to convince Abraham to switch his international allegiance, despite the fact the 21-year-old has already won two senior England caps in friendlies against Germany and Brazil.

Abraham has not publicly committed himself to either county, but it is understood he wants to play for England and would accept a call from Southgate if it came.

Tammy qualifies to play for Nigeria through his father, who is close childhood friends with the president of the Nigerian Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick.
