Jose Mourinho believes Tammy Abraham will remain at the Italian club AS Roma beyond this season despite Arsenal links.

Roma boss Mourinho has disclosed that he would not stop forward Abraham should the player decide to return to the English Premier League.

Abraham has been in top form this season scoring 25 goals in 50 matches as he becomes the first-ever Roma player to achieve such a feat in their debut season.

The England international found the beck of the net when he headed home in the 11th minute against Leicester City to book Roma their place in the Europa Conference League final.

Mirror reports that Arsenal are on the hunt of the former Chelsea striker as Mikel Arteta remains desperate in bolstering his squad ahead of the next season.

Mourinho is particularly confident that Abraham will stay in Italy beyond the current campaign, but said that he won’t stop him should he choose a move to Arsenal.

“I don’t think it’s an easy decision for a young, local player to leave his club, to leave his house, his city, his country, to leave the Premier League which of course is a competition that, when a player is in it, it’s hard to leave.

“He made that option and I think he made it by trust in me, and I think in this moment, if he wants to go back to England – I don’t think he wants now – but if he wants to go back to England he just need to click his finger.”

“I’m so happy for him, back to the national team, loved in Rome. I don’t want to say he’s proven everybody wrong, because I think everyone knows that he’s a good player.”
