Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has completed a permanent move to the Italian club AS Roma for a reported fee of €40 million. The English international who’s a product of Chelsea’s youth academy has signed up on a five-year deal with Roma. He was with the London blues since the age of eight.
Tammy Abraham now joins another Chelsea legend, manager Jose Mourinho or as Chelsea fans know him by, ‘The Special One’. Abraham will be hungry to get some playing time under his belt after being sidelined by Thomas Tuchel.
Abraham was targeted by several clubs which includes the likes of Arsenal and Inter Milan. During his time at Chelsea, he has won the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Super Cup. He made a total of 82 appearances for Chelsea finding the net on 30 occasions.
“You can sense when a club really wants you – and Roma made their interest clear immediately,” said Tammy Abraham.
“Roma is a club that deserves to be fighting for titles and trophies. I’ve had the experience of winning major trophies and I want to be in those competitions again – so I want to help this team to achieve that and get to the level where Roma should be.“
“It’s a massive honour to be the No. 9 at this club and I just can’t wait to get started and to help the team.”
