West Ham signing Chelsea duo for £45m would be great value - opinion

Hammers boss David Moyes wants to bring Abraham and Emerson to the London Stadium from Stamford Bridge this summer (Daily Mai and The Mirror).

Claret and Hugh recently suggested that Chelsea could now be open to selling the 23-year-old striker for £30 million.

Gazzetta dello Sport claims that the 26-year-old Italian could be available for around £15 million this summer.

West Ham signing Chelsea duo for £45m would be great value

Moyes certainly doesn’t have lavish funds at his disposal this summer.

So he will have to be thrifty in his player recruitment.

It is clear to see for everyone who watched the Hammers last season that we need to bolster our left-back and centre-forward ranks.

And we think that Abraham and Palmieri would be great additions. The Blues duo are very realistic signings as well with Thomas Tuchel ready to sell both players this summer (Daily Star).

Tammy, 23, is a proven goalscorer in the Premier League. He is big, strong, has great movement and is a great finisher.

Meanwhile, 26-year-old Emerson Palmieri is an attacking left wing-back in every sense. Similarly to Masuaku, he isn’t the best defensively, but is great going forward.

He would provide us with a totally different option when Moyes decides to play with a wing-back system.

Good value for the Hammers

On the face of it, £45 million for two players seems like a lot of money.

Considering their respective ages and talent, however, we think it represents great value.

Whether the West Ham board will be prepared to spend that kind of cash is an entirely different matter of course.
