Serie A giants AS Roma have agreed a £34m deal to sign Tammy Abraham from Chelsea.
Abraham, 23, must now decide if he wants to join Roma, who are managed by former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.
Fellow Serie A side Atalanta and Arsenal are also interested in Abraham, but Chelsea’s preference is to sell him to a foreign club, making a move to their London rivals less likely.
Abraham fell out of favour at Chelsea midway through last season as Thomas Tuchel replaced Frank Lampard as head coach.
The imminent arrival of Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan is set to push Abraham further down the pecking order and all but end the possibility of him staying at Stamford Bridge.
Despite his limited game-time during the second half of last season, Abraham ended the campaign as Chelsea’s joint-top scorer with 12 goals.
He has featured in each of Chelsea’s three pre-season friendlies and could be involved as they take on Villarreal in the Uefa Super Cup on Wednesday.
