In an exclusive interview with The Transfer Tavern, Rob Lee, who made 18 appearances for West Ham, believes one of David Moyes’ targets this summer, Tammy Abraham, will cost more than £30 million this summer.
It has been reported that David Moyes has prioritised Abraham as his number one target to replace Sebastien Haller, who they failed to replace in January after the club-record signing departed for Ajax.
Should West Ham sign Abraham?
Since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel at Chelsea, the £58,000 per week striker has struggled for first-team minutes, even being left out of the matchday squad for their FA Cup semi-final victory against Manchester City at the weekend.
Speaking on how much it will cost West Ham to sign Abraham this summer and if that would be a sensible price for the Chelsea striker, Lee told The Transfer Tavern:
“You’d be talking a lot of money for players like Abraham because £30 million probably gets you a cheap player now.
“You’re talking a lot of money to buy these sorts of players and Tammy Abraham will probably cost you more than that.”
West Ham have been heavily reliant on Michail Antonio for goals this season, however with his injury record it would be a wise move for Moyes to sign another striker this summer.
Jesse Lingard has been chipping in with goals since his loan move from Manchester United in January, which has helped the Hammers while Antonio has been out injured.
