Chelsea striker Abraham due in Italy today to close Roma move

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham is due in Italy today to complete a move to AS Roma.

The Daily Mail says Abraham has agreed to join Roma in a £34million deal.

The Chelsea striker is due to arrive at Rome's Ciampino airport on Sunday afternoon with the Italian club's sporting director Tiago Pinto.

Abraham was on the bench once again on Saturday and waved to supporters following Chelsea's 3-0 win against Crystal Palace as he left the stadium with a suitcase in tow.

The deal with Roma is understood to include a buy back clause of around £68m.

Abraham, who had been waiting for Arsenal to firm up interest, has also spoken to Jose Mourinho who was keen to convince the 23-year old how big a role the England forward would have at Roma.
