Tammy Abraham in Italy to complete £34m transfer to Roma

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has landed in Italy to undergo a medical prior to a £34million move from Stamford Bridge to Roma, reports suggest.

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 £34m transfer has now been agreed between Chelsea and Roma to reunited Abraham with former boss Mourinho.

Abraham, who did not make a first-team Blues appearance under the Portuguese but was involved in training, has landed in Rome to undergo a medical, according to Fabrizio Romano.

Last week’s £97.5m capture of Romelu Lukaku pushed Abraham even further down the pecking order for the No 9 role at Stamford Bridge.
