Roma closing in on £34m deal for Abraham as Chelsea look to offload the striker

Roma have proposed a £34million deal to Chelsea for striker Tammy Abraham.

The offer entails an initial loan with option to make the deal permanent. Chelsea would prefer an outright sale for the 23-year-old who has yet to agree to the move and also has interest from Arsenal.

The European champions are looking to sell a number of players to offset the £98m purchase of Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan and their ongoing move for Sevilla defender Jules Kounde.

Lukaku and his agent Federico Pastorello flew to Nice on Monday evening before travelling to Monaco. They will hold meetings there on Tuesday morning before making the final leg of their trip to London and finalising the Belgian's return to Stamford Bridge.

Abraham, who scored 12 goals last season, has already rejected a move to Serie A with Atalanta but is understood to be interested in working with Jose Mourinho at Roma.

Arsenal remain in the frame as they wait on Alexandre Lacazette sorting out his future.

Inter want a top striker to replace big earner Edin Dzeko who is heading for Inter as a replacement for Lukaku in a £4.5m deal. Inter are also considering a move for Everton's Moise Kean.

Meanwhile, Valencia have asked about taking 22-year-old Trevor Chalobah on loan from Chelsea for the season.
