Roma Agrees to £34m deal to sign Tammy Abraham.
23-year-old striker has to decide now to join the Italian club, who is managed by former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.
Abraham fell out of luck with Chelsea midway into the last season as Thomas Tuchel replaces Frank Lampard as head coach and was exempted from the squad for May’s Champion’s League finals, despite being ok.
The near arrival of Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan is set to push Abraham further down the Ladder and ends the possibility of him staying at Stamford Bridge.
Although limited in his game-time during the second half of the last season, Abraham eds the campaign as Chelsea’s joint-top scorer with 12 goals.
He featured in Chelsea’s three pre-season friendlies and could be a part of the team as they take on Villarreal in the Super Cup final on Wednesday.
Mourinho who was in charge at Stamford Bridge when Abraham came through the Chelsea academy, but didn’t make his first senior appearance for the Blues until after the Portuguese had left the club.
Abraham’s form for Chelsea under Lampard’s rule saw him feature and qualify in England Euro, 2020. He also got qualified in their most recent Nations League campaign, but a lack of playing time under Tuchel saw him fall out of Gareth Southgate’s plans in the months before this summer’s tournament.
