The imminent arrival of striker Romelu Lukaku at Chelsea is a clear indication that there has to be a reshuffling of the Blues squad. As a result, the London club are expected to let go of E gland international striker Tammy Abraham, who has been attracting a lot of interest from several clubs his summer. Abraham has been linked with moves to Arsenal, Lazio, Aston Villa, and AS Roma in the past but it’s currently looking like Roma have stolen the march ahead of their fellow suitors in agreeing a fee with Chelsea for the transfer of the striker in this summer’s transfer window.
However, after also being linked to David Moyes’ West Ham United, it looks like he will be quitting England entirely and moving to Italy. Roma are expected to lose striker Edin Dzeko this summer as the Bosnia and Herzegovina forward is one of the targets Inter Milan are looking at for their current vacant striker role. If Dzeko leaves Roma, it’s a clear green light for Abraham to be their next starting striker this season.
The Italian club will pay Chelsea an initial €5 million and are expected to pay the rest of the €35 – 40 million across the next few years till the payment is complete.
