Moyes urged to move for Chelsea striker

Republic of Ireland forward David Connolly has urged David Moyes to sign Tammy Abraham this summer.

The Chelsea striker was left out of the Blues’ matchday squad for their dismal 5-2 defeat against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

Abraham has started just three Premier League games since Thomas Tuchel took over as manager, and it appears that the German doesn’t rate him.

The 23-year-old is contracted to the club until 2023, but Connolly says he believes that a move across London would be in his best interests.

“West Ham would love him!” Connolly told talkSPORT. “They need another striker. They’re very reliant on Michail Antonio, but I can’t see Chelsea selling Tammy Abraham.

“Whether Tuchel wants a response – some managers might just want a response. Maybe he needs to do a bit more in training as well.

“You just hope he’s not spitting his dummy out because he’s not involved and that he’s showing the right attitude. This might be him sitting on the naughty step for a little bit.”

Abrahams is a graduate of the Chelsea Academy joining the club at the under-eights level, he made his senior debut for the club in 2016 before spending a season on loan with Championship club Bristol City. There, he enjoyed a successful campaign which culminated in him winning the club’s Player of the Season, Young Player of the Season and top goalscorer awards, becoming the first player ever to do so in a single season. A further loan spell at Swansea City followed for Abraham but the season ended with the club suffering relegation from the Premier League. He then joined Aston Villa in 2018 and became the first player since 1977 to score 25 goals in a single campaign for the club.

One comment on “Moyes urged to move for Chelsea striker

  1. The Chelsea manager is spot on, not good enough. He cannot make the Chelsea 18 and we are supposed to be competing with these clubs why would we swell their transfer kitty and buy someone who is no where near the standard. We need next level players at this stage to continue progression and Abraham is not that. I have seen alot of him and he is not good in close space, his touch is poor, his workrate is average at best as is his decision making on the ball and for a big lad he is not strong on the ball. Every PL defender knows how to play him. Sorry I wish the lad well but not at West Ham.
