Former Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has expressed his desire to move back to London at some point in the future.
The 24-year-old has been in superb form this season for Roma, scoring 23 goals in 41 appearances for the Serie A club and, when asked about a potential return to Stamford Bridge, he was pretty frank in admitting that it is a possibility:
“It’s all over the place at the moment. Who knows what the future holds. Of course I grew up in England. And I’m a London boy so maybe one day I will be back in the Premier League to make noise there.”
Chelsea did ensure that they included a buyback clause when they sold Abraham to Roma for €40m (£34m) last summer, but they would have to pay double (€80m or £67m) to get him back, and it only comes into effect at the end of the 2022/23 season.
Other Premier League clubs, including Arsenal, Manchester United and even Manchester City have been mentioned as potentially being interested in the forward. Whether any of them will actually make a formal bid before that clause can be triggered, we shall have to wait and see.
