Roma reach agreement with Chelsea for Tammy Abraham, await player’s decision

Andy Mattioli

Tammy Abraham is a concrete objective for Roma’s attack. With Edin Dzeko on his way to Inter, the Roman club have found their replacement in Chelsea’s 24-year-old striker.

According to Sky Sport, Roma have reached an agreement with Chelsea for the young attacker with a formula that would suit Roma’s current financial situation: an initial fee of €5 million and the remaining €35 million spread across the next few seasons.

It remains to be seen whether the clubs will agree on a loan with obligation to buy or a permanent deal, however the agreement does take into account a favorable payment in installments.

The player has also drawn interest from Arsenal, but the Gunners must sell one of their forwards first before making an offer for Abraham. Moreover, Chelsea prefer off-loading the young forward abroad rather than to a direct rival.

Roma are now waiting for Abraham’s decision: the club are ready to wait only until Thursday or Friday. If an answer does not come by then, General Manager Tiago Pinto will move onto other options.
