Striker Tammy Abraham has completed a 40m euro move to Italian side Roma from Chelsea.
Abraham, Chelsea’s joint top scorer last season, joins the Serie A club – managed by former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho – on a five-year deal. It is understood the deal for the 23-year-old England international includes a buy-back clause set at £68m. “You can sense when a club really wants you – and Roma made their interest clear immediately,” said 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 number nine at this club and I just can’t wait to get started and to help the team.” Abraham, who has had loan spells at Bristol City, Swansea City and Aston Villa, flew to Italy on Sunday for a medical after Roma struck a deal with European champions Chelsea over the weekend.
