Tammy Abraham has signed a five-year contract with Roma with a transfer fee of 34 million pounds; and in his statement, he is certain Roma is very interested in him which must have been a major contributory factor for his consenting to leave Chelsea.
23-year-old Abraham used to be Chelsea’s joint-top goalscorer in the previous season until he was made to frequently miss out on first-team chances ever since Tuchel became head coach.
According to the forward, he wants to help his new club play for trophies and titles and since he has had experiences doing that for Chelsea, he feels excited about actively doing this again for Roma to have the team given the credit they deserve.
The 23-year-old feels it is an honour being Roma’s No 9 and is quite anxious about starting games with the club.
Roma’s manager Tiago Pinto affirmed Roma’s interest in the young player by linking the interest to an observation of the young striker’s game; the forward has participated in more than two hundred games and scored more than a hundred goals while winning some major trophies.
The manager ventures into expressing how Abraham’s decision to leave Chelsea is hinged on an individual desire to nurture his own game and display what he is capable of doing in Roma, which is quite promising.
Pinto explains that making use of a player like Tammy with anxiousness to play for Roma emphasizes how the club is hoping to ingrain a sense of belonging in the development of the club’s team.
Reacting to Abraham’s departure from Chelsea, Marina Granovskaia, Chelsea director says his contribution to the Chelsea team will always be remembered.
