Italian publication Tutto Mercato Web claims there is a transfer triangle just waiting to be completed.

The three deals could end up scuppering the Hammers’ hopes of signing Chelsea hitman Tammy Abraham this summer.

It all starts with Chelsea wanting to sign Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan.

Atalanta will not sell Zapata to Inter until they have brought in a replacement, however, namely Tammy Abraham from Chelsea.

The West Ham fans have endured a difficult transfer window so far. And it could be set to get even worse.

Transfer triangle to dent West Ham Abraham hopes?

If Inter Milan do indeed replace Lukaku with Zapata and Atalanta sign Tammy, it will be a bitter pill to swallow for the Hammers.

He has all of the attributes needed to succeed at the London Stadium.

West Ham have already missed out on the likes of Patson Daka, Boulaye Dia and Danny Ings this summer.

The Sun claims Chelsea want around £35 million for the striker. That’s actually decent value considering his age and ability. It could well be a moot point, however.

Missing out on Abraham would add further salt to the wounds.
