Having played a central role in Abraham's absence, reports surfaced Chelsea were keen to extend his stay at the club, but Tuttosport now claim the former Arsenal hitman has made up his mind to leave.
Should that see the light of day, the 33-year-old would then move to Inter on a free transfer and he is set to sign a two-year contract with the San Diego outfit.
The sensational transfer will see him earn around £110,000-per-week and force Chelsea enter the market in search of a replacement.
Highly-rated German striker Luca Waldschmidt has been touted as his potential replacement.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante reportedly has no plans of dumping the Blues when the summer transfer window reopens unless the club decides to offload him.
Kante has built a reputation as one of the finest Premier League midfielders, attracting interest from top European clubs including Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid.
PSG have for long looked to sign Kante, but the World Cup-winning star is understood to be reluctant to return to France.
The former Leicester star is further thought not to be keen with a switch to Madrid as he is afraid he could end up playing second fiddle to Casemiro.
