• Chelsea and AS Roma have come to terms for the services of Tammy Abraham
  • Abraham fell out of the lineup  when Thomas Tuchel took control of the team
  • Chelsea missed out on Erling Haaland's signature early in the transfer window

Chelsea is looking to shake things up over at Stamford Bridge as they have come to terms with AS Roma that will see Tammy Abraham’s time with them come to a close.

The summer transfer window has not been particularly kind to the perennial English Premier League title contenders as they saw the departures of key pieces like Fikayo Tomori and Olivier Giroud to Serie A mainstays AC Milan.

Most disappointing for Chelsea fans, however, is how they were pegged to be the favorites to pry away Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund this summer.

It was reported early in the transfer window that they were closing in on a deal for the England-born Norwegian, but after he tweeted out that he was sticking with the boyhood club, everyone knew that the transfer had fallen through.

To their credit, Chelsea moved fairly quickly and decisively in the following weeks as they put together a deal that would bring Romelu Lukaku to Stamford Bridge.

The Lukaku deal is seen to be the biggest reason why Abraham has become the likely candidate to be sold.

Chelsea accepted AS Roma’s transfer bid of around €40 million ($47 million), but the player has yet to agree on personal terms despite conversations with AS Roma coach Jose Mourinho, which includes the player’s weekly wages and bonuses.

The deal also includes a buy-back option for Chelsea, which they can use later should they want him back for a fixed fee.

It’s a win-win deal for Chelsea and Abraham as it shows Chelsea still has hopes for Abraham, but if they don’t see a future with him, at least the latter already has a feature role with AS Roma as Edin Dzeko is poised to move to Inter as their replacement for Lukaku.

Though Abraham failed to make his mark at Stamford Bridge this time, he might soon be wearing the Chelsea jersey again sometime in the future.
