Chelsea signed up Romelu Lukaku this summer for a club record fee of £97.5m, as Thomas Tuchel sought a goalscorer in his attack.

The German didn’t give young striker Tammy Abraham enough playing time last season, and the 23-year-old has sealed a move to Roma.

Abraham was signed by Jose Mourinho to replace Edin Dzeko at the Olimpico Stadium, and he’s pleased with the transfer.

Chelsea still have faith in Tammy Abraham and inserted a buyback clause in his deal, and the Englishman has no issues with the club or even with Lukaku, and he has wished Lukaku well at Chelsea.

“I’m focused on my football. I have always tried to help the team I represent,” Tammy Abraham said in a recent press conference. “When Roma showed up, I shifted my focus.

“I will wear Dzeko’s shirt number, I always followed him on TV during my childhood. Hats off for what he did here, now it’s my turn to fill the gap and it’s a great responsibility.

“But I have faith in my abilities. [Romelu] Lukaku went the opposite way, he returned to London. But he’s a great player. I’m still young, for me, this is an important step.”
