Roma Signs Tammy Abraham For £34m

Published

on

Tammy Abraham has completed his £34million move to Roma after putting pen to paper on a five-year contract with the Italian club and taking their No 9 shirt.

Abraham arrived in the Italian capital on Sunday August 15, to complete his medical, where he will now play under former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.

His departure comes days after Romelu Lukaku sealed a sensational return to Chelsea in a £98million club transfer fee record, which pushed England forward down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge.

‘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 No. 9 at this club and I just can’t wait to get started and to help the team.’

The deal with Roma is understood to include a buy-back clause of around £68m and Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia said that Abraham will always be a welcome presence at the club.

‘Tammy will always be welcomed back at Stamford Bridge as one of our own,’ she said. ‘We have all enjoyed watching his progress through our academy and into the first-team squad, and are grateful for his contribution to our successes at senior and youth level.

‘His many goals in a Chelsea shirt and, of course, his part in our Champions League triumph last season will never be forgotten. I’m sure all Chelsea supporters will join me in wishing Tammy a long and successful career.’

Mourinho is expected to deploy Abraham as his main striker for the coming season, having allowed Edin Dzeko to leave to join Inter Milan last week.
