Rudiger helped get shocked Chelsea transfer deal all wrapped up England International announces
Former Chelsea frontman Tammy Abraham has revealed that Antonio Rudiger helped convince him to move to AS Roma upon completing a £34million transfer to the Italian outfit.
Abraham is a talent that was all set to become the leading striker for Chelsea until Thomas Tuchel came in, and he struggled to make any sort of impact on the German boss, despite netting 12 times last season.
And with the arrival of Romelu Lukaku this transfer window, it meant that the Englishman was not going to get the kind of game time that he would have hoped this season, and a move away from the Bridge was on the cards.
That allowed Italian giants Roma to swoop in and take him to Seria A football in a deal worth £34 million, and after completing his transfer move to the Italian giants, Abraham has revealed that Antonio Rudiger helped convince him to move to AS Roma
“They (Antonio Rudiger and Emerson Palmieri) loved everything, especially Toni Rüdiger, he told me he would always play for Roma again”, Abraham told Roma’s website when asked what Emerson and Rudiger told him about the club.
“Hearing it gave me confidence. As I said, I felt good from day one, I just have to do my best this season and help the team as much as possible.”
We never want to see players leave the Premier League, but this is a massive move from Abraham to make as it could work out and he bangs in the goals, or he could struggle to adapt to Italian football and come back to England
It is a massive career choice that many of us are hoping works out, but everyone will keep a close eye on his performances, as it could have probably saves Chelsea millions if they kept him
