The Hammers have been the surprise package in the Premier League this season.
David Moyes has worked wonders at the London Stadium. West Ham are currently sitting in fifth spot in the table, three points adrift of fourth placed Chelsea.
One glaring weakness we have, however, is our lack of options in the centre-forward department.
Michail Antonio is currently our only recognised striker. And that quite simply isn’t good enough for a club with aspirations of qualifying for Europe.
Clinton Morrison wants West Ham to sign Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham
David Moyes’s priority this summer will undoubtedly be to sign a top class centre-forward.
And Clinton Morrison urged the Hammers boss to go out and sign Chelsea hitman Tammy Abraham:
“100 per cent. Tammy would go to West Ham and score bundles of goals, if they manage to keep Jesse Lingard and add to that squad. He’s a good young striker, he’ll keep improving. He’ll score goals, he’s a threat in the air, he can stretch teams in behind, he’s good with his back to goal. He needs an arm around his shoulder. West Ham are a team on the up and if they have the funds, they should definitely go and sign Tammy Abraham.”
The 23-year-old seemingly faces a bleak future at Stamford Bridge with Thomas Tuchel at the helm.
Abraham has recently been left out of the German’s match-day squads.
A move to West Ham might just be what the Chelsea striker needs in order to spark his career back into life.
Tammy would be a sensational addition for the Hammers. He would offer us a real physical presence and he is an accomplished goal-scorer.
Signing the 23-year-old from Chelsea this summer seems like a no-brainer for David Moyes. Let’s just hope that the Blues don’t demand a ridiculously extortionate transfer fee for Abraham.
