Tammy Abraham update

Chelsea are prepared to drop their price to £30m for their striker Tammy Abraham according to @EXWHUEmployee

Initially, the West London side wanted £40m, a valuation which David Moyes said made the chance of a deal, a non-starter.

Arsenal and Spurs are also said to be keen on the London-born England international, and the Blues could be open to a loan deal with an obligation to buy should the player reach a pre-set amount of games.

Abraham earns around £80,000 a week at Chelsea but his agent reportedly says he wants £140,000 per week in personal terms to move to a new club.

Those wage demands would be difficult for the Hammers to accept without a domino effect amongst West Ham other earners some of which are claimed to have parity clauses inserted in their contracts.

Unless Abraham’s people reduce their demands the chance of signing the Chelsea striker still appears to be slim as it currently stands.

  1. Sean pulling numbers out of a hat again regarding player wages. Thought you had stopped giving out the details regarding finances of deals Sean?

  2. If he thinks hes worth 140 what is Antonio worth. ?????Think I might wave goodbye !!!!

  3. Arsenal is best fit for Tammy. Even if he was ‘free’ Wee Davey would still not be taking him. He would just block a squad place for someone more useful to our progress. Doesn’t make Tammy a bad player – just not for us.

    • Agreed, TH,

      I like him as a player, but he’s better suited to a possession based team, currently we’re a really potent counter attacking team. So no matter the price, he’s not the one for us, mainly due to his inability to hold onto the ball long enough. Just my opinion obviously 🙄.

  4. Why would a player who can’t get in a Chelsea side who finished 2 pts above us think he could demand an extra £60k a week to play elsewhere?
    Dream on sunshine, more chance of rocking horse waste being found on the moon

    • Agree. The disconnect between reality and player wage demands is mind boggling. Accept a wage cut till you have proved your value.

  5. We’re looking for young, hungry players.
    Tammy’s young but he’s obviously not hungry enough. This is the problem with so many of the Chelsea academy players, they are overpaid and seem to lose their desire to play first-team football, with their focus solely on the money instead. Chelsea has a fantastic Academy setup and thus can attract many talented youngsters to the club. Many of these players will find that they are stuck at Chelsea because of the wages they are on and their reluctance to move on for anything less. Maybe his wage demands are more likely tailored for a move to Arsenal.
    I also happen to agree that maybe Abraham isn’t the best fit for our style of play.
