AS Roma striker

AS Roma striker Tammy Abraham has been targeted by the club for the long term, according to Fabrizio Romano. The club acquired him this past summer from Chelsea. Romano mentions that Roma manager Jose Mourinho is very happy with Abraham while the player is also very happy at the club.

The caveat here, however, is that Chelsea have a buyback clause for €80 million that be valid in July 2023.

Excelling in Italy

Abraham had a topsy-turvy career of sorts before completing his move to Roma. Now, the 24-year-old is thriving, firmly marking his stake in Italy while hopping into the radar for England’s 2022 World Cup squad.

His statistics this season speak for themselves. In Serie A, Abraham holds 15 goals and three assists to his name in 29 matches. In the UEFA Europa Conference League, Abraham has scored seven goals in eight matches. Lastly, he also holds one goal and one assist to his name in the Coppa Italia.

This, of course, is a major step forward from last year. While at Chelsea last season, Abraham scored six goals in 22 Premier League appearances. He also had one goal and two assists in five Champions League matches, four goals in three FA Cup matches, and a goal and two assists in two Carabao Cup appearances. Abraham showed flashes of brilliance last season but has really put his play together under Mourinho at Roma.

Roma are on the outside looking in when it comes to Champions League qualification in Italy. They’re sixth in the league with 51 points from 30 matches. This places them eight points behind fourth-place Juventus. There’s still a shot that Abraham and Roma qualify for the competition, but an unlikely one.

With that being said, Roma are using this season as a building year. They’ve found a true striking talent in Abraham, and he will be one of the focal points of their project moving forward.
