Roma agrees to sign Chelsea man for £34m

Italian giants, Roma have agreed to sign Tammy Abraham from Chelsea for £34m according to a report from Sky in Italy. The report states that it is left for the 23-year-old Englishman to decide if he wants to join the Italian club, who are managed by former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho was in charge at Stamford Bridge as Abraham was coming through the Chelsea academy, but the forward didn’t make his first senior appearance for the Blues until after the Portuguese had left the club.

Abraham thrived during loan spells at Swansea and Aston Villa but seemed to be on his way to becoming Chelsea’s main striker under the management of Frank Lampard.

However, he fell out of favour at Chelsea midway through last season as Thomas Tuchel replaced Frank Lampard as head coach and 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 and all but end the possibility of him staying at Stamford Bridge.

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 they take on Villarreal in the Super Cup final on Wednesday.
