Abraham, 24, has thrived in the Italian capital since joining Jose Mourinho’s side in a £40m deal last summer.
The former Chelsea ace has scored 23 goals in 40 appearances so far this term and his brace against Lazio last weekend saw him break a long-standing record held by Gabriel Batistuta for goals in a debut season at the club.
Thomas Tuchel was happy to let Abraham leave last summer after the £97m signing of Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan but the England forward has left the Blues questioning their decision with his form this term.
Chelsea have a buy-back clause in Abraham’s contract that allows them to re-sign the forward for £67m in 2023 but Roma are already receiving strong interest in the striker.
The Daily Mail claim the Italian giants are depserate to keep Abraham and have slapped a £100m price tag on his head.
Manchester United and Manchester City are both touted as possible destinations should Abraham return to England, as they’re two clubs in need of a striker and both could afford the forward.
United want to sign a new, dynamic centre forward to compete with Cristiano Ronaldo next term, while City have played most of the season without a recognised centre forward.
Roma’s preference is to keep Abraham but they’d struggle to turn down bids close to their valuation, particularly as they posted losses of £154m last year.
Abraham, for his part, is enjoying life in Serie A and is minded to stay for at least another 12 months in Italy.
