Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham will undergo a medical examination in Roma on Sunday ahead of the completion of the € 40 million transfer to the Italian club.

Tammy Abraham will arrive in Italy

Tammy will fly to Italy to complete the permanent transition to Stadio Olimpico after Tuchel deems it overkill at Stamford Bridge. Lukaku’s return to Chelsea from Inter would see a significant reduction in playing time for the 23-year-old, and the club ultimately decided to cash in on a player with just two years left to run on his contract.


Terms of a transaction

Tammy Abraham will reportedly devote her future to Roma until 2026, and is set to make around € 5 million a year in salary with the Serie A giants. The terms of the deal with Giallorossi include a buyback clause of € 80 million. Chelsea will be able to launch this option once the England international has completed two full seasons at Stadio Olimpico, where he will play under former Blues head coach Mourinho.


A little about Tammy Abraham

Tammy Abraham originally started his career at Chelsea back in 2016 after spending the previous 12 years in the club’s youth system. The forward went on to score 30 goals in 82 games for the Blues and helped the club win their second Champions League crown last season. Tammy Abraham added the UEFA Super Cup winners medal to his CV last week, but spent most of his time in Chelsea’s books on loan, with periods taken at Aston Villa, Swansea City and Bristol City.

Roma wants to close a deal for Tammy Abraham so he can fill the boots of outgoing frontman Edin Dzeko, who has joined reigning Italian champions Inter. Jose Mourinho contacted Tammy Abraham personally to convince him to join his squad at Stadio Olimpico, impressed by the performances for Chelsea in 2020-21. He could be in line to make his debut for Roma in their Serie A starting against Fiorentina on 22 August if all goes well and is expected to help the club fight for European qualifiers this time frame.
