Roma have reportedly proposed a £34million deal to Chelsea for striker Tammy Abraham and the offer entails an initial loan with the option to make the deal permanent.
The European champions meanwhile would prefer an outright sale for the 23-year-old who has yet to agree to the move and also has interest from Arsenal.
Thomas Tuchel’s side are looking to sell a number of players to offset the £98m purchase of Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan and their ongoing move for Sevilla defender Jules Kounde.
Lukaku and his agent Federico Pastorello flew to Nice on Monday evening before travelling to Monaco.
They will hold meetings there on Tuesday morning before making the final leg of their trip to London and finalising the Belgian's return to Stamford Bridge.
Abraham earns in the region of £80,000-a-week and it will be interesting to see if he believes Roma is the right move for him.
The 23-year-old now has a decision to make. He must now decide whether he wants to head to Italy or pursue another move before the transfer deadline.
Abraham, who scored 12 goals last season, has already rejected a move to Serie A with Atalanta but is understood to be interested in working with Jose Mourinho at Roma.
Arsenal remain in the frame as they wait on Alexandre Lacazette sorting out his future.
