Roma Agree £34m Deal With Chelsea To Sign Tammy Abraham
Italian Serie A side, Roma have agreed a £34m deal to sign Tammy Abraham from Chelsea.
Abraham, 23, must now decide if he wants to join Roma, who are managed by former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, according to new reports by Sky sports.
Atalanta and Arsenal are also interested in Abraham, but Chelsea’s preference is to sell him to a foreign club, so he won’t hunt them in the premier league.
Abraham is unwanted at Chelsea as Thomas Tuchel prefers a faster more fluid attacker.
Despite his limited game-time during the second half of last season, Abraham ended the campaign as Chelsea’s joint-top scorer with 12 goals.
He has featured in each of Chelsea’s three pre-season friendlies and could be involved as Chelsea take on Villarreal in the UEFA Super Cup final on Wednesday.
He was left out of the squad for May’s Champions League final, despite being fully fit.
The imminent arrival of Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan is set to push Abraham further down the pecking order so he might be forced to leave Chelsea.
