Tammy Abraham has adapted to life in Italy as quickly as possible. The former Blue made his Serie A debut against Fiorentina last month and assisted two goals as Roma defeated Fiorentina 3–1. In the following game, he scored his first goal for Roma in a 4-0 win against Salernitana.

Jose Mourinho was pleased to sign up the striker from Chelsea ahead of the season and told everyone to watch out what would become of Abraham.

Meanwhile, Roma also signed up another striker Eldor Shomurodov who is behind Tammy Abraham, and he has admitted it is ‘tough’ seeing Tammy Abraham join Roma as well, and hopes the two forwards can play together under Jose Mourinho.

“It all happened in a week, Mourinho first spoke with my agent and then with me. I couldn’t believe it could all be done so quickly,” Shomurodov told after scoring for Uzbekistan on international duty.

“I always try to give my best, whether I start or come off the bench. We’ll all have our chance. It was a bit tough to accept at first, but everything is fine now. I can play alongside him too. We haven’t actually tried it yet, but Mourinho knows I can play in a wider role as well.”

Shomurodov battled against relegation with Genoa last season, and he has his sights much higher at the Stadio Olimpico as he hailed the tactics of Mourinho.

“Our objective is to get back into the Champions League, then we’ll also try to win the Europa Conference League. It’s an enormous difference between the clubs, and obviously the organisation is incomparable too.

“There is no pressure working with Mourinho, he is our teacher and we are the students. He’s a great psychologist, the training sessions are really interesting.”

Meanwhile, Chelsea made the smart decision to insert a buyback clause in Abraham’s deal as the young striker is expected to be a big hit in the near future.
