The Hammers chief will be desperate to bolster his centre-forward ranks at the London Stadium this summer.
West Ham have been linked with so many strikers since January. Sometimes it’s hard to know what rumours have any truth behind them and what ones don’t.
Chelsea ace Abraham certainly seems to be a player who is on our radar, however.
David Moyes has price in mind for Tammy Abraham
The Daily Mail claims that the West Ham boss is reluctant to pay more than £25 million for the 23-year-old striker.
Chelsea, meanwhile, are thought to be holding out for closer to £40 million (Daily Mail).
Perhaps the two London clubs will have to meet somewhere in the middle in the end.
With Tammy facing a bleak future at Stamford Bridge under Thomas Tuchel, and with just two years remaining on his current deal, Chelsea will surely have to lower their demands for the forward.
Abraham would be a truly exceptional addition for West Ham. Ex-Blues boss Frank Lampard recently described him as ‘special’ and labelled him as a ‘fantastic’ striker.

£25 million would be outstanding value. Even if the Hammers have to go to £30 plus add-ons, it is a deal that we should be looking to wrap up as soon as possible.
