Tami Avraham could have chosen to stay at Chelsea this season, to be part of a team that is fighting for the Premier League championship after already winning the Champions League a few months ago.
It would require him to wait patiently for minutes of play when Romulo Lukaku rests, and to say thank you for every opportunity he gets.
The 23-year-old striker, who grew up with the Blues, was already confident that he was on his way to becoming the club's attacking anchor after a very successful season on 19/20.
But last year, Abraham saw how Thomas Tuchel uses him mostly as a substitute, and this season the arrival of the huge Belgian has already marked him the way out.
Because Tami Avraham, for his part, is already due to lead and be a leading pioneer, one who is trusted to provide numbers.
So instead of being a tail for lions, he chose to be the head of foxes - or rather, wolves - and moved to Rome.
A month since that transition, and it already seems like Abraham has made the best move he could have made for his career.
Already in the opening round he cooked twice against Fiorentina.
Although he did not find the net, the viola defense had a hard time dealing with his tremendous power.
The following week he scored a debut goal against Salernitana, and last Thursday he celebrated a winning goal against Udinese.
In six games he provided three goals and two assists, but more than that - he proved why Jose Mourinho insisted on signing him for about 40 million euros.
Avraham got into the shoes of Edin Dzeko in Rome.
Both know how to play with their backs to the goal, serve as a pivot and move like a classic goal striker, but the Englishman, unlike the Bosnian, has a few more elements in his game that should improve the Giallorossi attack - dribble, explosive power and impact on the field.
With fast players behind him, such as Lorenzo Pellegrini, Henrik Mikitrian and Niccolò Zaniolu on the wings, Rome have a front that can make trouble for any defense and allow flexibility for the Portuguese manager.

In recent years we have seen more Englishmen, especially youngsters, choosing to move to other leagues in Europe, something that was not common in the past.
Prominent among them are Jaydon Sancho in Dortmund, Jude Billingham and Noni Madwaka.
If Mourinho had concerns about the striker's adaptation, he calmed down very quickly.
"There is always little doubt about a player born and raised in England," the coach explained.
"They are not leaving London so much and it is not easy to adapt, but my doubt has passed. Tammy fits in perfectly."
Avraham's insistence on moving to Olimpico, as well as his ability on the pitch, caused him to enter the hearts of the fans in "Corba Secret".
Today he will already be able to buy his world in the derby against Lazio, when the meaning of a goal against the great rival is very clear to him: "From the moment I arrived, they did not stop talking to me about this game. I am ready."
