Tammy Abraham, a striker for Roma, claims he never looked back after leaving Chelsea last summer.
The Blues academy graduate was sold for £34m to make room for the signing of Romelu Lukaku, who has since returned to Inter on a season-long loan after scoring just eight Premier League goals since his £97.5m arrival.
While Lukaku was having trouble adjusting, Abraham at Roma quickly found his feet. He finished his first year with 27 goals in 53 games across all competitions, leading Roma to victory in the Europa Conference League.
Abraham recently told Corriere dello Sport that he has no regrets about leaving Chelsea, and the statistics speak for themselves.
“Never [have I regretted leaving], not even for a second,” the striker said. “Choosing Roma was one of the right decisions I have made in my life.”
The 24-year-old has been linked to a few other English teams after his breakout season in Italy, but Abraham’s sole focus is on Roma. Chelsea has the option to re-sign Abraham for about £67 million.
“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.”
Abraham added: “The first day I arrived at Roma 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.”
