Tammy Abraham, a former Chelsea striker, has made it clear that he has no plans to rejoin the Blues this summer and is content at AS Roma. He insisted that his choice to join the Italian team was the right one and expressed a desire to get better during his time there.
Abraham, 24, moved to Roma from Chelsea last summer for about €40 million. However, the Blues have inserted a buyback clause into his agreement, allowing them to acquire him for €80 million in the summer of 2023.
The England international was questioned about the clause in an interview with Corriere dello Sport.
“You better believe that I focus on the here and now rather than the future. I only think about the upcoming season because I want it to be even more rewarding than the first one I had in Italy.”
When asked if he regretted leaving Stamford Bridge, Abraham responded: “No.”
“Never, not for a single second. One of the wisest choices I’ve ever made was to choose Roma.”
In 53 games for Roma across all competitions last season, Abraham scored 27 goals and contributed five assists.
By scoring nine goals in 13 games, he assisted the Italian team in winning the inaugural UEFA Europa Conference League. Since winning the Coppa Italia in 2008, the team had not won a trophy.

The only English players to score more in a single season in a major European competition (excl. quals) are Alan Shearer (11 in 2004-05 UEFA Cup) and Stan Bowles (11 in 1976-77 UEFA Cup).
