Tammy Abraham has joined Roma from Chelsea for a club record fee of £34m and has signed a five-year contract with the Serie A club.
The 23-year-old will wear the number nine shirt at Roma and becomes the club’s fourth signing of the summer.
“You can sense when a club really wants you – and Roma made their interest clear immediately,” Abraham said.
“Roma is a club that deserves to be fighting for titles and trophies. I’ve had the experience of winning major trophies and I want to be in those competitions again – so I want to help this team to achieve that and get to the level where Roma should be.
“It’s a massive honour to be the No. 9 at this club and I just can’t wait to get started and to help the team.”
