West Ham United have received a massive boost in their hopes of landing 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.
West Ham have been linked with a host of forwards over the last six months.
Tam’s always been the man for Moyes according to insider
Way back in April ExWHUemployee claimed Abraham had emerged as West Ham’s most wanted to fill the striker void.
But the likes of Aston Villa, Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund have also been linked.
Well David Moyes has been given a huge boost after Sky Sports claimed Abraham has officially been put up for sale and Chelsea ‘will consider any offers’.
West Ham are also name-checked in the report.

“Chelsea will consider any offers for 23-year-old forward Tammy Abraham,” Sky Sports reports.
“London rivals Arsenal are interested in Abraham, although they would prefer an initial loan while Chelsea would favour a permanent deal.
“It is thought Chelsea would want upwards of £40m for Abraham and West Ham are also interested.”
West Ham finally making movement on new arrivals claims insiders
Whether West Ham have the funds to get a deal done for Abraham – whose contract expires in 2023 – remains to be seen.
But well informed West Ham insiders claimed yesterday that the Hammers finally look set to break their transfer duck for the summer with talks underway for two new signings.
In other news, report lifts lid on specific reason West Ham star is ‘unhappy’ with new contract offer.
