Hammers remain keen on Chelsea front man

West Ham are keen to bring Tammy Abraham to the London Stadium but are likely to be faced with a £25 million price tag to do so.

Despite the current flat market, Chelsea are not ready to let the 23 year old leave Stamford Bridge on the cheap.

We understand that Abraham is currently very much on David Moyes’ radar but with Manchester United wanting a minimum of £20 million for Jesse Lingard  the Hammers owners will need to dig deep to make both transfers happen.

Abraham has been very much out in the cold at the Bridge like another former Hammers target Michy Batshuayi was before being sold to Crystal Palace.

The Irons had been very much in the race for the Belgian front man but were gazumped by Chelsea when buying him from Marseille.

And later when trying to bring him to the London Stadium, the striker preferred the Palace option before finally signing for the south Londoners on a permanent basis.

Claret and Hugh understand Abraham is a potential target and any switch – as will be the case with most this clubs this summer – could depend on agreeing instalment terms.

  1. If we decide to sign Abraham we will be basically saying to our best players that we have no real ambition.

      • Yes, he is completely overrated and I think most Chelsea fans are in agreement based on comments on social media. If we spent 25m on him Chelsea would see us as complete mugs and I would agree with them. The signings this summer have to be to bring us to the next level. Tuchel does not rate him and I rate him highly as a manager and from I have heard some of the Chelsea players don’t rate him either.

    • David Moyes is no mug in the transfer market, and he’s been at the helm.of EPL clubs for the best part of 20 years. If David Maoyes wants Tammy Abraham, but a bunch of Chelsea fans don’t, I’m gonna go with David Moyes, thanks very much.

  2. In my opinion, Abraham would be a good signing for West Ham at £20m-£25m. All he needs is regular football to give him confidence. That’s what’s happened with Leicester’s Iheanacho this season. Injuries provided a decent run and he can’t stop scoring now.,

  3. I like Abraham,Tall,strong,plenty of pace and he is only twenty three.
    He has only played seven full games this season in which he has scored six goals so not bad at all.

  4. Abraham would be a fantastic signing – he has all the attributes Moyes wants as well as being only 23 and English. Resale value is also there. He also doesn’t need time to get up and running with the pace of the Prem.

    My only concern is not with Abraham, is that we’re remarkably short in so many areas of the pitch. We could spend £45/50m on Abraham and Lingard, which I would assume leaves us with not much else. Getting rid of the likes of Lanzini and Yarmolenko then leaves us with an even smaller squad, that also has to fight, I hope, in Europe.

    We need to hope Moyes can be shrewd in the transfer market, with a couple of loan deals and one or two experienced heads brought in on frees or low fees, such as Dawson was, to bolster the team. Also hope that Odubeko and Alese can be integrated with the first team a bit more.
