Tammy Abraham is now edging closer to joining AS Roma, after a successful visit from the club’s general manager Tiago Pinto.
Di Marzio report that Tiago Pinto’s trip to London has proved decisive, with the latest round of talks considerably increasing the chances of AS Roma completing the signing of Arsenal-linked Tammy Abraham.
Abraham is now more convinced of Roma’s project and his potential part to play in it, compared to his fringe role with Chelsea. Roma already have an agreement with Chelsea if they can get Abraham’s consent, intending to pay €5m up front and €35-40m in the coming seasons.
The deal still isn’t done, and the report suggests the next few hours will be crucial to come to a final decision, but it’s clearly looking a lot more likely now.
Various sources have confirmed Arsenal’s interest in Abraham this summer, but the problem was always that they needed to sell before they could buy.
The player seemed keen, and his desire to join Arsenal was seemingly holding up the Roma deal. But with little progress on that front, it’s not surprising Pinto’s push to get the transfer done is picking up speed.
Not to mention that if Abraham was watching Arsenal play on Friday, that won’t have done much to convince him to keep waiting for them.
