Abraham: ‘I am in love with Roma, but we’ll see what future holds’

Tammy Abraham reiterated he has ‘fallen in love’ with Roma and is very grateful to them for ‘giving me the opportunity to show myself,’ but wouldn’t confirm whether he’d still be there next season.

The Giallorossi comfortably swept Torino aside 3-0 away from home to secure their top six finish, which might even be fifth if Lazio lose to Verona tomorrow evening.

That means they will play in the Europa League next season, even if they don’t win the Conference League Final against Feyenoord in Tirana on Wednesday.

Abraham bagged a brace, with Lorenzo Pellegrini converting a penalty late on for a foul on Nicolò Zaniolo.

With 17 goals, Abraham is now the top-scoring Englishman in a single Serie A season, beating the record of 16 set by Gerry Hitchens for Inter in 1961-62.

“I would’ve loved to get three and score a hat-trick for my team, but the most important thing is we won. It’s been a long hard season, fair play to all my teammates, we’ve done well, now we’ve got a Final to look forward to and we’re all excited,” Abraham told DAZN.

In all competition, the former Chelsea striker has found the net 26 times in 51 appearances. Is this the season that saw him improve the most under the guidance of Jose Mourinho?

“Like I’ve always said, I fell in love with this club from the first day and I will always help the team as much as possible with my goals and assists.

“It’s been a good year for me, I hope to build on this year and hopefully we can finish with a trophy and it can be the perfect year.”

The Europa Conference League Final is against Feyenoord on Wednesday evening in Tirana.

“This is a dream come true for Roma fans, for the club, we’ve made it to the Final, now we have to rest and recover well, so hopefully we’ll be celebrating on Wednesday night.”

Abraham was asked if he will still be in Serie A with the Roma jersey next season, amid growing speculation of a possible Premier League return to Arsenal or Manchester United.

“I love this club. They’ve given me the opportunity to show myself, my heart is here. We’ll see what the future holds, but my heart is here.”

    Translation:

    “I may prefer to be in England.”

    Footballer speak for “I’d happily leave for more money/better team”

    It looks like a situation similar to Lukaku’s. Eternal love declared for Inter and finally escape to Chelsea’s pounds. I wish Abrahm the best of luck, but I advise him to evaluate the outcome of this previous case.

    Its wrong to think after one success year in Italy, then you will be good to move club especially abroad. Tammy should stay and learn to be consistent first

    He’d be mad to leave Rome, never understand why players leave clubs where they’re adored and play consistently well to sit on a bench somewhere for a few quid more.

    @Ferban, Abraham’s words do not to simply equate to “I may prefer England”.

    There are many factors. If Roma receive an offer that is twice what they paid for the player, or more, it will be very difficult for them to refuse it, especially as they haven’t qualified for the Champions League.

    Tammy’s agent will obviously be keen to get another juicy percentage.

    Then we have the player. He may indeed “prefer England”. He might feel that he has something left to prove in the Premier League. And again, money talks. If he can double his wages, then, as with Roma, it will be very difficult for him to turn such a move down.
