Roma striker Tammy Abraham has shared that his friend Reece James is always telling him to join Chelsea.

Tammy Abraham, who actually came through the Chelsea academy, has played regular first-team football in the past at Stamford Bridge. He did swap West London for Rome a couple of years ago, though.

The 25-year-old forward has had a decent spell for Italian club Roma, scoring 36 goals in 102 appearances for them across two seasons.

But will we ever see the Englishman return to the Premier League in the future?

Speaking in an interview with Tuttomercatoweb, Abraham claims old teammates James always urges him to seal a return to the Blues.

“I still talk to so many Chelsea players, James always tells me to come back,” Abraham said.

It’s no secret that Chelsea desperately need to sign a centre-forward in this summer transfer window. Abraham’s name has been mentioned in transfer speculation, too.

Journalist Simon Phillips reported on his Substack earlier this month that Abraham is a player “being mentioned” at Chelsea as a potential transfer target.

Meanwhile, Calciomercato recently reported that Serie A side Roma could be open to selling Abraham for around £40million.

We don’t mind hearing Abraham’s name linked as a possible solution for the No 9 position. However, there’s better options out there we should explore first.

The Roma frontman would probably score more goals than anybody else in the current Chelsea squad over a whole season.

There is a real strong core of academy players still in the first-team squad at Chelsea, which is something the fans would love to keep moving forward. Let’s wait and see if James gets his wish to link up with Abraham again.
