Tammy Abraham is unlikely to sign for Aston Villa this summer according to a report from The Athletic and that should be great news for West Ham.

Hammers boss David Moyes desperately needs to add a top class striker to his ranks at the London Stadium this summer.

The West Ham fans are already getting restless and there is still just under two months remaining before the transfer window slams shut!

We all need to be patient. There is plenty of time left for Moyes to adequately strengthen his options at West Ham.

It is just rather annoying to see clubs like Aston Villa and Leicester City act with speed, precision and efficiency in the transfer market.

It seems as though the tables could be starting to turn, however…

Tammy Abraham future update provided

The Athletic claims that a return to Villa Park is unlikely for the 23-year-old Chelsea striker this summer.

 

That may well open the door for West Ham.

There is still one big problem of course – the Blues alleged demands for Tammy.

In order to prise him away from Stamford Bridge this summer, the Hammers may have to pay as much as £40 million (Football.London) or as little as £30 million (Claret and Hugh).

Much will depend on just how ambitious the West Ham owners are. Will a move for Abraham depend on the sale of a big name?

Or will David Sullivan and David Gold back Moyes to the hilt in the transfer market regardless of outgoings? Time will tell.

The Athletic’s report claiming that Villa are unlikely to sign Abraham this summer should help our cause, however.
