Former Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham has sparked rumours that he may be on his way back to England after admitting that he is a ‘London boy’. 

The Englishman, who departed the capital to join Roma in 2021, revealed that he enjoys seeing his name linked with big clubs, but insisted he is focussed solely on his career in Italy.

“I see that I have been linked with so and so, and as a player it makes you feel good,” he told TalkSPORT.

“As a player it makes you feel like you’re doing something right.

“It’s a nice feeling to be linked, but for me it’s just doing my business here. Focussing on what I am doing here so I can keep getting linked with all the clubs.

“Of course I grew up in England and I am a London boy, so maybe one day I will be back in the Premier League to make noise there.”

Since making the move to the Italian capital to join former Blues boss Jose Mourinho, Abraham has impressed, scoring 23 goals in 41 matches across all competitions.

Abraham has rediscovered his best form in Rome

The 24-year-old’s comments have stirred speculation linking him with a move back to Stamford Bridge.

After scoring a respectable 30 goals across his first two full seasons at Chelsea, Abraham found himself out of favour when Romelu Lukaku returned to the club for a record fee.

A £34 million move followed, however Chelsea did include a buy-back clause which becomes active this summer, allowing them the opportunity to sign Abraham for £68 million.

Abraham will be focussed on securing his place in the England set up, having missed out on Euro 2020 last year.

The England international withdrew from Gareth Southgate’s most recent squad, but will fancy his chances of holding down a place for the World Cup in Qatar later this year.
