Tammy Abraham is the number one transfer target for West Ham this summer according to Claret and Hugh. Olivier Giroud, however, probably won’t be moving to East London.

The Hammers’ need for a top class striker has been well-documented since January.

David Moyes absolutely must bring at least two top class centre-forwards to the London Stadium this summer.

Two players to have been extensively linked with West Ham over the past few months are Chelsea duo Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud (The Daily Mail and Eurosport).

It seems as though Moyes won’t be bringing both strikers to the London Stadium, however.

Tammy Abraham is number one West Ham target

That’s according to Claret and Hugh who claim that the 23-year-old Blues hitman is number one on the list for Moyes this summer.

The Hammers insider claims that Giroud is not an option for the Scot, however.

It its clear that neither Abraham or Giroud have any kind of future under Thomas Tuchel at Stamford Bridge.

So eyeing moves to sign them both would certainly make sense.

If West Ham have the option of one or the other, however, Tammy is clearly the man we should be pursuing.

The 23-year-old striker is a great finisher. He has real pace and possesses fantastic movement.

If West Ham could pick Tammy top for just £25 million this summer, it would be exceptional business for us.

Whether Chelsea would be prepared to sell him for that kind of fee remains to be seen, however.
