In an exclusive interview with The Transfer Tavern, Rob Lee, who made 18 appearances for West Ham United, has claimed that Tammy Abraham may prove to be too expensive if Chelsea are wanting £40 million for the striker.
It has been reported that the Blues will look to receive £40 million for their academy graduate who has fallen out of favour at Chelsea since Thomas Tuchel took over from Frank Lampard earlier this year.
Should West Ham sign Abraham?
Speaking on how £40 million could be too expensive for West Ham and how Abraham has proved himself to be worth that much, Lee told The Transfer Tavern:
“Yeah, that is really expensive and a lot of money but I think he’s done very well and he’s always scored goals whether that be for Aston Villa or Chelsea.
“I’m sure there’ll be other clubs who are interested in him if they’re going to let him go and £40 million does seem a lot of money, but clubs will pay it.”
