Hammers boss David Moyes will be desperate to bring a top class striker to the London Stadium this summer.

The West Ham boss currently has only Michail Antonio to choose from. That needs to change, and fast.

One name to have been heavily linked with a move to the Hammers is Chelsea ace Tammy Abraham.

Eurosport recently claimed that Blues hitman Tammy Abraham is on West Ham’s radar.

In fact, ExWHUemployee claims that the 23-year-old is David Moyes’s number one centre-forward transfer target.


West Ham now face AC Milan competition for Tammy Abraham

The 23-year-old hitman is now on the Serie A club’s radar according to the Evening Standard.

He is quick, possesses impressive movement and is a very good finisher.

Chelsea want £40 million for the 23-year-old according to the Telegraph.

That is a lot of cash, and with Abraham barely featuring at Stamford Bridge under Thomas Tuchel, it would be no surprise to see the Blues lower their demands for the centre-forward in the summer.

As things stand, however, it seems as though West Ham will have to beat off competition from AC Milan before worrying about how much Abraham will cost.
