Hammers boss David Moyes really needs to bring an established striker to the London Stadium this summer.

West Ham have sold Albian Ajeti and Jordan Hugill, leaving Sebastien Haller and Xande Silva as the only two recognised centre-forwards for Moyes to choose from.

The Daily Mail reckon Abraham could be a target for the Hammers. And they also suggest Blues boss Frank Lampard could be willing to let the 22-year-old leave Stamford Bridge on loan following the recent arrival of Timo Werner.

The four-capped England international is a top class striker and he could be a superb addition for us this season.

Stats

The 22-year-old was in great form for Chelsea last season, with 15 goals in 34 Premier League games to his name.

 

Abraham has bags of pace, is a tireless and willing runner and he is very strong in the air.

The Chelsea hitman would provide real quality support and competition for Sebastien Haller. A loan deal would obviously be a short-term fix for West Ham.

But at the moment, perhaps a short-term fix is the best we can hope for.

Abraham joining West Ham on loan would benefit all parties involved. The 22-year-old would be given regular action this season. He would guarantee the Hammers goals whilst Chelsea would most probably get a better and more mature player back when he returns to Stamford Bridge.

The Blues striker is on £58k-a-week at Chelsea according to Spotrac. So his wages shouldn’t be a problem for West Ham.

This really does seem to be a no-brainer for the east London outfit.
