Hammers still in striker race

West Ham are still in the race to sign Tammy Abraham from Chelsea, according to The Athletic.

The Hammers are interested in a deal to snap up the striker from the Blues but boss David Moyes has outright said that a deal at around £40m is impossible for the club.

As such, the Irons are reported to be interested in a deal to sign the striker on loan in the summer window.

The report claims that the Irons will attempt to sign Abraham on a short-term deal, even if Chelsea insist on receiving a fee for the striker this summer.

Abraham is also said to be a target for Newcastle, Leicester, and Aston Villa, but none of them are able to pay £40m for the star.

As such, West Ham are hopeful that a loan deal is within reach as the summer window approaches.

He has struggled for minutes this season, and has made 22 appearances in all competitions, scoring six goals.

One comment on “Hammers still in striker race

  1. I would not even bring him in on loan. I was watching the game against Everton and I was thinking of Abraham and how lost he would be in a game like that – has so little creativity in his game. He is a player that has pace but he is not what we want. I rate Antonio a far better player.
