Carlton Palmer reckons that Tammy Abraham could leave Chelsea permanently and believes that West Ham are interested in signing him.
Abraham was Chelsea’s first-choice striker during his breakthrough season under Frank Lampard in 2019-2020, but his sacking back in January appears to be the beginning of the end to his Stamford Bridge career.
Will West Ham United qualify for Europe in 2021/22?
He made just a handful of appearances following Thomas Tuchel’s arrival and having been left out of the matchday squad for both the FA Cup and Champions League finals, his days at Chelsea look limited.
Abraham has been linked with a return to Aston Villa, although with Ollie Watkins currently in the form of his life, moving to the London Stadium with West Ham would give the 23-year-old a better chance of regular football.
West Ham are yet to replace Sebastien Haller, who left in January, meaning injury prone Michail Antonio remains their own recognised striker.
And Palmer exclusively told The Transfer Tavern that David Moyes wants him:
“Tammy Abraham, we’ve spoken about him before. He needs to go out and play.
“It looks like he’s fallen out with the boss at Chelsea, you might even be able to get him out of the club full stop, I know they’re asking big money for him, but he’s proven he can score goals in the Premier League, and I believe David Moyes is very interested in him at West Ham.”
