In addition to Mourinho, the center forward also received a call from Arteta and is thinking about it. The Giallorossi ds Pinto, however, does not want to wait …
These are very important hours, in Trigoria, to understand who will be the striker who will take the place of Edin Dzeko. Roma have identified the replacement in Tammy Abraham of Chelsea and have a total agreement with the English company. Onerous two-year loan and redemption for a total of over 35 million. Mourinho has already called the player, the Friedkins could also change the payment methods and make them more immediate if this were to speed things up, but Pinto has no intention of waiting too long. If Abraham says yes well, otherwise Roma will turn elsewhere. In summary: the Giallorossi club is willing to move for a less provisional solution (outright purchase or with a very simple redemption obligation), the ball now passes to the player.
The boy is torn. He knows that the doors are closed for him at Chelsea, he has always dreamed of Arsenal and Arteta also called him to tell him to wait to accept Roma. Chelsea, however, have no agreement with the Gunners yet (despite someone in England saying yes) and are reluctant to see the forward against a historic city rival. Not only that: those close to Abraham are advising him to accept Roma because working with Mourinho could be important for his career and Serie A could relaunch him more than the Premier. He took a few days to reflect, Rome is moderately optimistic but does not want to participate in auctions and wait too long.
If in the end Abraham were to really choose Arsenal, Roma would go to Zenit’s Azmoun or Real Sociedad’s Isak. Another name is that of Edouard of Celtic, but it is a much more secluded profile than the other two. Certainly Pinto is looking for a young striker (of these the greatest is Azmoun with his 26 years), who is possibly resalable and does not have a salary exceeding 4 or 5 million per season.
