Tammy Abraham has completed a permanent transfer to AS Roma, departing Chelsea, both clubs have confirmed.

The Serie A club complete the signing of the 23-year-old, fending off competition from Atalanta, West Ham and Arsenal.

 

Abraham leaves Chelsea, the club where he has been at since Under-8’s level.

The move sees the striker join up with former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho in Rome ahead of the new Serie A season.

Abraham, meanwhile, has put pen-to-paper on a five-year contract with the club that runs until 30 June 2026.

He will wear the No. 9 shirt.

“You can sense when a club really wants you – and Roma made their interest clear immediately,” said Abraham.

“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 made his England debut in 2017, scoring his first goal for his country two years later in a match against Montenegro.

“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,“ said Tiago Pinto, Roma’s General Manager.

“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.”

Abraham becomes the club’s fourth signing of the summer, following in the footsteps of Rui Patricio, Eldor Shomurodov and Matias Vina.
