Tammy Abraham’s second chance to shine as a Chelsea comrade and Manchester United competitor has arrived.
Tammy Abraham is expected to join AS Roma from Chelsea this summer.
According to Sky Sports, Chelsea and AS Roma have agreed to trade Tammy Abraham for £34 million. The England international has yet to agree to a contract with Jose Mourinho, but he could find a new lease on life in Italy.
After being shunned by Thomas Tuchel at Stamford Bridge, Tammy Abraham could be on the verge of resuming his career.
He could end up following in the footsteps of Fikayo Tomori and Chris Smalling, who both moved to Italy and saw their form skyrocket.
It comes after AS Roma agreed to a £34 million proposal for the striker, who will be replaced by Romelu Lukaku.
With Tuchel in charge, Abraham has taken a backseat after emerging into the first team under Frank Lampard.
Last season, the England international did not even make the bench for the FA Cup final or the Champions League final, and Chelsea are looking to trade him to raise finances.
When given the chance, Abraham is a genuine goalscorer, as evidenced by his record at Bristol City, Aston Villa, and even Chelsea, when he averaged just under a goal every two games.
Chelsea are searching for a more clinical player, and Tuchel does not think the 23-year-old will be the man to lead the line this season.
That is not to say that Abraham is a bad player; he has the potential to become a star in Serie A, similar to his English teammates Tomori and Smalling.
After an initial loan from Chelsea, when he blended in perfectly and helped the team finish second in the league – their greatest finish in a decade – AC Milan’s fans have fallen in love with Tomori.
Smalling was in a similar scenario to Abraham while at AS Roma, having been dropped from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s starting XI only to become a star in the Italian city.
With Jose Mourinho at the helm, the two might be sharing a locker room shortly. Mourinho knows the attacker well from his time at Chelsea the season before his debut.
With Arsenal interested in signing Abraham, he may feel compelled to stay in the Premier League.
Moving to Serie A, on the other hand, might be the best case scenario. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
