West Ham United offer around £30million for Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham
West Ham United are offering around £30million for Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham, refusing to meet the club’s £40million valuation, according to The Sun.
Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are also 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, with the Gunners named as favourites in the race.
Abraham earns around £80,000 a week at Chelsea, and the club are happy to take him off their wage bill after he failed to win over manager Thomas Tuchel.
£30million for Abraham is the best West Ham can go, and we believe it is a fair deal.
Chelsea will not be getting £40million from anyone for the 23-year-old, and we are offering them a chance to sell before his value plummets.
While he fell out of favour under Tuchel last season, Abraham is not a bad player, and manager David Moyes is apparently keen on having him at the London Stadium.
He still needs a lot of work to do on his finishing, but is a decent striker, ending last season with 11 goals and two assists across all competitions despite limited playing opportunities.
We need a hungry striker leading the Hammers line next season, and the Chelsea man could be one as he has a lot to prove.
Abraham wants to play at the World Cup next year and also show his detractors that he has what it takes to be a world-class finisher.
Moyes could be offering him that chance, helping him to improve and develop, and he has the opportunity to play regularly at West Ham compared to Arsenal.
We are also offering Europa League football, something unavailable at the Emirates, and Abraham should be pushing to join us this summer if he wants to get his career back on track.
