Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham has completed his football transfer as he joins Roma. Jose Mourinho’s side confirmed the transfer news in an official statement published on their website. The English international has put pen-to-paper on a five-year contract with the club. This means the Italian club will keep the European Champions player until June 30, 2026.
The 23-year-old striker joined the Italian club for a fee of 40 million euros and will wear the No. 9 shirt. The transfer agreement with the London side also includes an option to buy back for €80m. Joining the team of Jose Mourinho, Tammy Abraham said, “You can sense when a club really wants you – and Roma made their interest clear immediately.”
Tammy Abraham began his football career with Chelsea in 2014 playing for the youth team. He was promoted to the senior team in 2016, where he scored 21 goals in 58 appearances. He also played with Bristol City, Swansea City, and Aston Villa on loan from the Blues.
“Roma is a club that deserves to be fighting for titles and trophies. I’ve had the experience of winning major trophies and I want to be in those competitions again – so I want to help this team to achieve that and get to the level where Roma should be. It’s a massive honour to be the No. 9 at this club and I just can’t wait to get started and to help the team,” he added.
Roma’s General Manager, Tiago Pinto commented welcoming the Englishman, “Despite still being very young, with a huge amount of potential to keep improving, Tammy has already played more than 200 games in his career and scored over 100 goals – and won a number of major trophies too.”
“Choosing to leave the Premier League, and the club he grew up at, demonstrates very clearly just how much he believes in this opportunity to develop his own game and show what he can do at Roma. Bringing in players that have such a hunger and desire to play for our club is hugely important in helping to build the identity and sense of belonging that is a fundamental part of our overall vision for this team,” Pinto said.
