David Moyes has been told to reassess his summer targets at West Ham United.
Returning West Ham star simply must start at Burnley despite fan concerns
The Scot has worked a minor miracle at West Ham this season with the club right in the mix for a Champions League place.
West Ham desperately need a new striker in the summer after another injury-hit campaign for Michail Antonio.
Reports claim Abraham is Moyes’s prime striker target this summer
The likes of The Daily Star and West Ham insider ExWHUemployee have claimed Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham is one of Moyes’s prime striker targets this summer.
The Telegraph reported yesterday that the 23-year-old Chelsea outcast has been put up for sale this summer.
That could be good news for West Ham even if the initial reported valuation seems steep at £40 million.
But West Ham should start looking at other targets.
Jordan says Tammy is too good for West Ham and backs Barca move
That’s according to talkSPORT pundit Simon Jordan who says Abraham is simply too good for the Hammers.
“Tammy Abraham can operate at that (top) level if he’s given the opportunity to do so. That opportunity is not going to come at Chelsea,” Jordan told talkSPORT.
“So it now becomes about the economics of how this boy goes out to the right club for him.
“I don’t think, with due respect, it’ll be West Ham because he’ll have different aspirations. I could see him at a club like Barcelona or a club in Italy or one of the top six in this country.
“This boy could play in the Manchester United side.”
Some fans divided over Chelsea outcast
With West Ham currently fifth with eyes on a top four finish – they could well be one of the “top six” sides Jordan suggests Abraham is good enough for.
Some West Ham fans are not convinced Abraham would be a good signing – particularly at £40m. Others feel Declan Rice’s mate is just what West Ham need.
Football is all about opinions and Jordan is more than entitled to his.
Even if it does seem a touch fanciful given the striker can’t even get in the Chelsea squad.
