Former Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has insisted he is happy with current side Roma, but also refused to rule out a Premier League return amid speculation linking him with Arsenal. 

The England international left the Blues last summer after the arrival of Romelu Lukaku, and has impressed during his first season overseas.

The 24-year-old has scored 24 goals in all competitions and also provided five assists for Jose Mourinho’s side, who face Leicester in the Europa Conference League semi-finals.

That form has seen the striker linked with a return to England this summer, and the striker has spoken about the speculation, via Metro.

“For me to be doing what I’m doing now for a great club like Roma, I can’t really describe the feeling,” Abraham said when quizzed on Thursday about his time in the Italian capital.

“Coming off the back of a difficult season at Chelsea where I wasn’t really playing games, coming here and shining, it’s like a dream come true for me.

“I’m happy playing my football. Of course, you hear the little rumours here and there, different people interested, clearly for me I’m doing the right thing if people are watching.

“Give credit to my teammates, the staff, the manager, they have a big part to play in how well I’m doing.

“For me, like I said, I just want to go all the way and hopefully win a trophy.

Abraham has flourished in Rome

“I was born and raised in England, so of course there are many rumours that there’s clubs interested.

“Like I said, I’m clearly doing something right at Roma if people are interested.

“I just have to stay focused, keep doing my thing, keep playing my football, focus on this competition, where we finish in the league, and we’ll see what happens in the future.

“For now, my main focus is beating Leicester.”

Abraham’s comments will do little to cool rumours of a Premier League return.

Arsenal will be in the market for a striker when Alexandre Lacazette departs this summer and, having scored 26 goals in 89 games in the competition, Abraham is a proven Premier League option.

Former club Chelsea have also been rumoured to be interested in the Englishman.

The Blues included a buy-back clause, believed to be around £68 million, in the deal to sell him and it reportedly becomes active this summer.
