Tammy Abraham has signed a five-year contract with Roma after agreeing to a £34 million fee with Chelsea. The 23-year-old is looking to rekindle his career under José Mourinho.
On Tuesday, the Serie A club sealed a £34 million deal for the 23-year-old, who will take over as the club's new No.9.
After the Bosnian startled the Giallorossi by joining Inter Milan, Abraham was signed as his replacement.
And the Roma manager lauded his club's owners for securing a contract for the 23-year-old in an “incredibly difficult market.”
“I have to say the general manager and owners have been brilliant,” Mourinho stated on Roma TV.
“The reality is that we started pre-season thinking we had Dzeko and what happened was a bit of a surprise for all of us.
“In an incredibly difficult market and in a financial situation that is difficult for every, or more precisely, almost every club, having the willingness, the ambition, the respect for the fans’ emotions and reacting in this way after losing Dzeko and bringing in Tammy Abraham was a real coup.”
The 23-year-old signed a lucrative five-year deal at the Stadio Olimpico and Mourinho is convinced that the driving striker will make his presence felt.
Fikayo Tomori and Chris Smalling are other brilliant English stars who would be featuring in the Italian Seria A this season.
