Roma striker Abraham has hopes of Chelsea return

Roma striker Tammy Abraham has hopes of eventually returning to Chelsea.

Il Corriere dello Sport says Abraham wants to 'go home one day' in a bid to conquer the Premier League.

His 17 goals and four assists in just 30 games for Jose Mourinho's Roma certainly suggest he is worth the near £70m his boyhood club have the option to pay.

Roma though are playing it cool over the 24-year-old's future.

The club's sporting director Tiago Pinto was quizzed about Abraham's release clause and the potential for a Premier League return in less than 12 months.

Pinto said this week: "It's true, that clause does exist, but we are not worried.

"It's only valid from 2023, but I am not concerned. I am happy because he is playing well and can get even better."
