Chelsea have ‘meeting scheduled in London’ over potential £34M sale of attacker

Posted by

The Atalanta board have a meeting pencilled in with Chelsea to discuss a potential transfer for Tammy Abraham, according to Fabrizio Romano.

Abraham has found the back of the net on a relatively consistent basis since being brought into the fold at Chelsea by Frank Lampard. Still, he’s never been seen as the long-term solution in attack for the Blues.

The club’s lack of faith in Abraham is telling, especially when you consider that there’s a €115M payment pending out of Roman Abramovich’s bank account to bring Romelu Lukaku to Chelsea.

As a result it’d be no surprise to see him sold before the transfer window closes later in the month.

If Fabrizio Romano is to be believed, and he usually is, Serie A outfit Atalanta are interested in taking Abraham off of Chelsea’s hands. They’re reportedly set to hold face-to-face talks with the Blues.

Atalanta can offer Abraham [who is valued at €40M, around £34M] Champions League football, but it’s unclear at this point whether he’d be keen on leaving England for Italy, especially with the World Cup in Qatar on the horizon.

Irrespective of whether Abraham’s move to Atalanta comes to fruition, it’d be a surprise to see him stick around at Chelsea. As Fabrizio Romano notes, Arsenal and West Ham are also keen.
