Tammy Abraham ‘flies to Rome’ to complete £34m transfer from Chelsea to Roma
Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham is flying to Rome today to complete his transfer to Jose Mourinho’s Roma, according to reports.
Abraham has fallen out of favour under Blues boss Thomas Tuchel and has sought a fresh start, agreeing to join the Serie A side in a £34million deal.
Tuchel used the England forward just seven times after replacing Frank Lampard in January.
Timo Werner, Olivier Giroud and even Kai Havertz have often been preferred ahead of Abraham as the focal point of Chelsea’s attack.
Abraham scored 12 times last term but 11 of those came in the first half of the season under Lampard.
The 23-year-old’s decision to depart might have been prompted after Tuchel left him out of the matchday squads for both the FA Cup and Champions League finals last season.
A transfer has now been agreed between Chelsea and Roma. Abraham is flying to the Italian capital today to complete a move, according to Goal.
