Tammy Abraham has reached a stalemate with Chelsea regarding new contract talks according to a report from ESPN, and perhaps the door is now wide open for West Ham United to sign the striker in the summer.

Hammers boss David Moyes desperately needs to bring a new centre-forward to the London Stadium this summer.

Having sold Sebastien Haller in January, we really need to sign two new strikers.

Eurosport claimed a couple of weeks ago that the Hammers want to sign the 23-year-old Blues forward.

Claret and Hugh then suggested that West Ham will push on with their interest in Abraham in spite of his £80k-a-week wage demands.

West Ham signing Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham makes perfect sense

With the amount of attacking talent that Thomas Tuchel has at his disposal at Stamford Bridge, Abraham’s future in west London looks bleak.

It would be no surprise to see Chelsea move him on this summer.

And West Ham should be all over it.

The six-capped international is a great finisher and isn’t afraid to put in the hard yards.

Some Hammers fans have compared the Chelsea hitman to Sebastien Haller regarding the fact that he doesn’t run the channels etc.

All we can say is watch Tammy play. Look him up on YouTube. That quite simply isn’t the case.

If given regular first-team action at West Ham, Abraham could be a real hit in East London.

The Chelsea ace is perfect for David Moyes’s setup at the London Stadium.

And if the west London outfit are prepared to sell the striker for a reasonable fee this summer, signing him will be an absolute no-brainer for West Ham.
