Since moving on from Chelsea in the summer, England International Tammy Abraham has certainly found his feet, in Italy’s capital city of Rome.
Since moving to the European mainland, Abraham has notched up 15 Serie A goals and 23 goals in all competitions, so far this season. This means in his professional career, when he has played at least 10 league games, he has only scored under 15 league goals twice.
It would be easy to assume the 24-year-old has quite simply picked up where he left off at Chelsea, after being ousted by the club’s big money moves for Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku, but the player has found another gear.
Under Jose Mourinho, the striker has become a talismanic like figure in the Roma side, being key for them, not only leading the line but being integral to their build up, and linking play.
This season Abraham averages 1.1 key passes per game, takes 2.9 shots per game, wins 2.3 aerial duels per game and has put up three assists so far. One thing that has grown in the player, other than his confidence, is his positioning, with the majority of his goals coming inside the box.
His form has kept the Giallorossi in the hunt for a place in Europe, with the club currently sixth after a derby day win over Lazio, a game in which Abraham scored twice.
It’s no surprise that many Premier League clubs have begun scouting the striker, but it seems like it will take a lot to get him to move away from Roma.
