Tammy Abraham speaks out on Chelsea buyback clause

The attacker has insisted that he remains fully focused on matters in Rome

Former Chelsea star Tammy Abraham has, on Friday, been drawn on the subject of the Blues’ option to bring him back to Stamford Bridge next summer.

Hitman Abraham, of course, secured a permanent departure from Chelsea a little over a year ago.

After being identified as a prime target on the part of incoming AS Roma boss Jose Mourinho, the England international opted to take his talents to Serie A with a view to the 2021/22 campaign.

Abraham’s time in the Italian capital has since proven largely productive, with his debut Giallorossi term having given rise to a none-too-shabby 27 goals and five assists.

And yet, despite his success thus far, lingering doubt has remained when it comes to the striker’s future.

As part of the agreement which sent the club’s youth product to Serie A, Chelsea secured a buyback clause, set to become active in the summer of 2023.

Speaking to the media on Friday night, the 25-year-old, as a result, was drawn once more on the prospect of Chelsea triggering their option to bring him back to London ahead of next season.

In comments which will no doubt come as music to the ears of the Roma faithful, though, Abraham was quick to insist that he remains fully focused on matters in Italy, altogether ‘happy’ with his situation as part of Jose Mourinho’s squad.
