Jose Mourinho is allegedly interested in a surprise summer trade of Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham to Roma.
The 23-year-future old’s at Stamford Bridge seems to be in serious question with a lack of playing time under Thomas Tuchel since his appointment as manager in January, while Olivier Giroud just signed a new deal.
Abraham has been linked to a number of teams, with the Leicester Mercury suggesting that recent events may bode well for Leicester City’s pursuit of the star.
Additionally, their source indicates that Mourinho is interested in moving Abraham to his new club Roma next season, while potential Premier League suitors include West Ham, Aston Villa, Wolves, and Newcastle United.
The England international seems to have a plethora of enticing choices if he does depart Chelsea this summer, and it would be intriguing to see him test his luck with a transfer overseas.
Roma are a large club, and it may be beneficial for Abraham’s growth to go beyond his comfort zone a little, as young English players are increasingly doing, with positive results.
Jadon Sancho and Jude Bellingham are the greatest success stories in that regard, having both flourished at Borussia Dortmund after their early relocation to Germany.
