Roma will listen to offers for England and former Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham as they struggle to confine within UEFA’s Financial Fair Play regulations.
The 25-year-old has failed to have the same impact he had during his debut season in the Italian capital, only managing nine goals from 53 appearances in all competitions compared to his tally of 27 goals from the same amount of matches last term.
The former Stamford Bridge graduate missed a golden chance in extra time in the Europa League final against Sevilla on Wednesday in Budapest. That miss proved to be costly as the Yellow and Reds were eventually beaten 4-1 on penalties after the two sides couldn’t be separated during two hours of football.
England international could be set for summer switch
Nevertheless, Abraham is still seen as one of Roma’s most valuable squad members and according to The Telegraph’s Mike McGrath, club officials could use the funds created by the 6 ft 3-inch striker as an opportunity to strengthen the squad this summer with the cash-strapped club needing to sell before they can buy.
With two years under his belt abroad, the timing may also be right for Abraham to return to his homeland with the forward’s place in England manager Gareth Southgate’s squad in doubt only 12 months away from the European Championships, set to take place in Germany.
