West Ham United insider ExWHUemployee has delivered an update on the club’s pursuit of Chelsea outcast Tammy Abraham.
It is perhaps the worst kept secret in football that West Ham are desperate to sign at least one striker this summer.
Moyes has been left with the brilliant but injury prone Michail Antonio as his only senior forward following the sale of Sebastien Haller in January.
Hammers linked with a host of strikers but Abraham long reported as Moyes’s main target
West Ham have been linked with a host of forwards over the last six months.
But way back in April ExWHUemployee claimed Abraham was West Ham’s most wanted to fill the striker void.
The likes of Aston Villa, Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund have also been linked.
And Sky Sports recently claimed Abraham has officially been put up for sale and Chelsea ‘will consider any offers’.
Arsenal and Villa links a cause for concern for West Ham
There are concerns Arsenal could appeal to Abraham given he is a massive Gunners fan.
Villa would also be a big draw for Abraham as he has an excellent relationship with Villa fans having played there previously.
And the Midlands club could use some of the £100m they look set to receive from Man City for Jack Grealish to beat West Ham to the striker.
Now ExWHUemployee has delivered an update on the Abraham situation.
West Ham insider delivers Abraham update amid new links to Embolo
And he admits things have gone quiet with West Ham now being linked to Borussia Monchengladbach forward Breel Embolo instead.
“When he (Embolo) joined the German side we were very interested in him and his performances in the Euros impressed David Moyes,” ExWHUemployee said on The West Ham Way Patreon site.
“Whilst his goal scoring at club level isn’t that impressive it is thought he has the attributes to play well in the system we use.
“As I have said Abraham isn‘t close at the moment and with limited money going on a centre back and midfielder a loan here could work for both parties.”
