AS Roma striker Tammy Abraham has insisted he has no regrets about leaving Chelsea last summer. 

The 24-year-old England international was sold to Jose Mourinho’s side last summer in a £34m deal to help make room for the signing of Romelu Lukaku. But since leaving Stamford Bridge, Abraham has flourished at the Stadio Olimpico. In contrast, his replacement, Lukaku, who was signed for £97.5m, has returned to Inter Milan on loan after failing to thrive. 

Unlike the Belgian, Abraham settled in quickly at Roma. He ended his debut season with 27 goals in 53 games in all competitions, helping the Rome side to win the maiden Europa Conference League.

And speaking about his move to Rome, the Chelsea academy graduate stated that he does not hold any regrets, “Never [have I regretted leaving], not even for a second,” the striker recently told Corriere dello Sport via 90min.”

“Choosing Roma was one of the right decisions I have made in my life.”

Thomas Tuchel’s side. Abraham has been linked to several European sides after his breakout season in Italy, and his former side have the option to re-sign him for around £67m,” he added.

But the England international has insisted that his focus is solely on Roma.

“Believe me: I am not thinking of the future, but of the present,” he said. 

“I focus exclusively on the season that is about to begin because I want it to be even more rewarding than the first I experienced in Italy.

“The first day I arrived at Rama I felt at home. I’m in no hurry to get back to the Premier League because I can express my way of playing here. In Italy, I feel happy in every respect.”
