Report: Chelsea ready for striker bids

Sky Sports have revealed that Chelsea are now formally ready to  consider any offers for 23-year-old forward Tammy Abraham.

The Hammers have regularly been reported as being interested along with Arsenal although the Gooners would allegedly prefer an initial loan while Chelsea would favour a permanent deal.

Abraham made 32 appearances in all competitions for Chelsea last season – but only seven of them came under Thomas Tuchel.Tammy Abraham has scored four FA Cup goals this season, including a hat-trick against Luton in the fourth round

Abraham has a Chelsea contract until 2023  but the south west London club are now in the market for a new striker and Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland is one of a number of players they are interested in.

The Hammers are desperate for a new front man but it’s highly unlikely they will be ready to go anywhere near the £40 million apparently wanted by Chelsea.

They are also keen to find a new central defender following Fabian Balbuena’s departure and remain in wait and see mode as far as Jesse Lingard are concerned.

  1. Did Messi sign his new contract yet?
    Now we’ve European football we’re an attractive proposition, we could probably guarantee him first team football too, save him warming the bench.
    Looking at the success of Osvaldo Ardiles, there is no reason why he couldn’t succeed in the Premier League.

  2. In other words they have had no enquiries for him and what they are really saying is we just want to remind you that he is available for sale and is there anyone out there who is stupid enough to sign him for 30-40m as we really want to get rid of him and then spend your money on buying more quality to make us stronger…

  3. We can’t afford him either.
