The former Chelsea striker has revealed his targets after linking up with Jose Mourinho at AS Roma for this season.

Tammy Abraham aims to help restore Roma as a challenger for all major titles after completing his move to the club on Tuesday.

The 23-year-old has joined the Serie A outfit in a €40 million transfer from Chelsea. He has signed a five-year contract until June 2026 and will wear the No.9 jersey at the Stadio Olimpico.

It will be the first time Abraham spends time abroad, having spent his entire career in England. But with a familiar face in former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, he arrives in Italy hoping for regular game time and a chance to help take the Giallorossi to new heights.

“You can sense when a club really wants you – and Roma made their interest clear immediately,” Abraham told the club’s website.

“Roma is a club that deserves to be fighting for titles and trophies. I’ve had the experience of winning major trophies and I want to be in those competitions again – so I want to help this team to achieve that and get to the level where Roma should be.

“It’s a massive honor to be the No. 9 at this club and I just can’t wait to get started and to help the team.”

Abraham leaves Chelsea with a tally of 30 goals and 12 assists in 82 appearances. The Blues academy graduate is Roma’s fourth signing this summer after Rui Patricio, Eldor Shomurodov, and Matias Vina.
