Abraham made the switch to Serie A during the summer of 2021 after falling out of favour under Thomas Tuchel.
He went on to take ] the Italian top-flight by storm, netting 27 times for Roma across all competitions in 2021/22 – the most of any player in their debut season for the club.
Abraham has not been as prolific in 2022/23, though, scoring just six and assisting four in 22 Serie A outings so far.
Despite this, Abraham is a target for both Chelsea and Manchester United, according to Fabrizio Romano, who also explained the two club’s stances on signing the Englishman.
“There’s nothing particularly concrete between Abraham and any Premier League club at the point, but what is true is that there is a buy-back clause for Chelsea, which became valid in 2023,” Jacobs said.
“Chelsea do want a forward this summer, but there’s no suggestion Abraham is top of their list and that buy-back clause is set at €80m. Chelsea would prefer to try to make the Joao Felix loan deal permanent and then focus on outgoings in the final third to work out what else is feasible (both financially and in terms of squad size).
“If they do sign Felix I can still see them trying for another striker and there are several names on their list. Juventus’ Dusan Vlahovic is one forward to keep an eye on with a real opportunity to get a done this summer.
“For Manchester United, the admiration for Abraham is very genuine. Ten Hag likes like the player. But like Chelsea there are others ahead of him in the queue. We know Manchester United love Napoli’s Victor Osimhen, as in fact do Chelsea.
“Manchester United won’t bill Abraham as a ‘back up’ to Osimhen, but it’s not a bad way of putting it.”
