Abraham can use Roma move to rebuild career
Tammy Abraham will join AS Roma for £34 million, as reported by Sky Sports.
The striker is likely to be a key part of Roma boss Jose Mourinho’s plans for this season. However, it appears that Chelsea have not given up on the player totally and have inserted an €80 million buyback option into the deal.
The 23-year-old spent the last two seasons with the Blues first-team and whilst he showed flashes of brilliance in the 2019/20 season, he had a poor 2020/21 season which led to him virtually becoming surplus to requirements at the club after it roped in Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan.
Abraham can use the opportunity as an opportunity to rebuild his career with a view to potentially returning to Chelsea, if that is something that is on his mind. He can use the story of Lukaku as inspiration.
Lukaku was also deemed surplus to requirements at Chelsea as a youngster but eventually became one of the world’s best players, earning a return to Stamford Bridge this summer.
An interesting fact about Abraham is that he has thus far played his best football when he was on loan away from Chelsea.
He first showed his potential in the 2016/17 season as he scored 23 Championship goals while on loan with Bristol City. He again had a successful loan spell in the Championship with Aston Villa during the 2018/19 season as he scored 25 league goals from 37 games.
If Mourinho manages to work well with him, Abraham is capable of scoring a lot of goals with Roma.
