Tammy Abraham Set To Join Mourinho After Roma Medical Today

Chelsea outcast Tammy Abraham is expected in Rome on Sunday for a medical after agreeing a permanent transfer to Roma.

Roma lost Edin Dzeko to Inter, and after a lot of thought about the move, Gianluca Di Marzio notes that Abraham has officially accepted their proposal and has already packed his bags.

The 23-year-old is due to arrive in Italy around 1pm to undergo medical and finalise the paperwork of a permanent deal which will see his parent club earn around £34m plus add-ons.

Importantly for the Blues, Jose Mourinho’s side have agreed to hand Chelsea a buy-back clause of around £68m and will only become active from the summer of 2023.

According to The Athletic via 90min.com, a lot of the delay on Abraham's final decision came from the striker's preference to remain in Italy and join Arsenal.

The Gunners had made it clear that they were interested in signing the youngster but were reluctant to meet Chelsea's asking price of £40m.

That price also scared off both Aston Villa and West Ham, leaving Roma as the only real offer in front of Abraham.
