Tammy Abraham has been valued at 60 million pounds (€67.9 million) by Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp ahead of his side's trip to Stamford Bridge, where they face Chelsea on matchday six in the Premier League on Sunday.

According to the latest market values published by Transfermarkt.com, the Chelsea number nine will become the eleventh most expensive striker in the world based on Klopp's valuation.

Speaking to reporters, Klopp said : ''People talked about how young they were but they only played because they were that good, not because they were that young.

"They brought in Christian Pulisic in the summer for 50-or-60million and all the players around him have the same value.

"Tammy Abraham is now a 60million player, Mason Mount for sure 60million - if not more, Hudson-Odoi was that already."

Abraham, Fikayo Tomori and Mason Mount have all impressed after they were brought into the first team fold by manager Frank Lampard following the transfer ban slammed on The Blues for breaching rules about signing minors. 

With seven goals in his last three games in the top-flight, Abraham faces his biggest test yet this afternoon when he comes up against one of the best defenders in the world, Virgil van Dijk.
