Tammy Abraham is a striker in hot demand, with West Ham United in the race to sign the England international from AS Roma. This comes amidst reports from corrieredellosport that Roma are willing to listen to offers for the 26-year-old this summer.

Roma have made it clear that Abraham is available for transfer, with a price tag of around €30 million (£25.3 million). However, Italian sources suggest that this figure could be negotiated down to €22 million (£18.6 million).

Several Premier League clubs are circling Abraham, with Everton, Leicester City, Tottenham Hotspur, and Aston Villa all reportedly interested.

The Hammers are in dire need of a striker to complement or potentially replace Michail Antonio. Antonio’s age and fitness are a growing concern for manager Julen Lopetegui. His attacking style demands a prolific goalscorer, and Abraham fits the bill.

Abraham has experience in the Premier League and is entering his peak years as a footballer. After a mixed spell in Italy, where injuries hampered his progress, Abraham now seems determined to prove himself in England.

While West Ham haven’t made a formal bid yet, they are considered frontrunners in the race for Abraham’s signature. The potential to secure him at a lower transfer fee is an added incentive. With several Premier League clubs vying for his signature, West Ham will need to act quickly if they want to secure Abraham’s services.

    If we’re only bringing in one striker, this would be too big a gamble.

    1 striker doesn’t look to be sufficient to cover injuries/rotation.
    If Antonio would sanction it keep him as a sub for last 20 minutes either defence or attack.
    His bully boy tactics against tired opposition has worked in the past.
    Definitely no longer a 90 minute man.
    If Ings goes that only leaves Cornet maybe Mumba if they stay.
