The meeting is set to take place in the 'next 48 hours' with other reports suggesting that it will happen on Monday.

It was previously reported that Chelsea were exploring 'viable exit strategies' for Abraham as he is surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge and could command a big fee.

Chelsea have started a domino effect in the transfer window with the Serie A club targeting Abraham as a direct replacement for Duvan Zapata, who is set to join Inter Milan as Romelu Lukaku moves to Chelsea.

Lukaku's move to Chelsea will see Abraham fall even further down the pecking order in London and a move to Atalanta could revive his career.

Romano continues to report that the price tag for Abraham is 'around €40 million' and with talks set to be held, it remains to be seein if Atalanta will meet his valuation.

Aston Villa are also keen on the forward but would prefer a loan move.
