In an exclusive interview with The Transfer Tavern, Marlon Harewood, who made 164 appearances for West Ham, has urged his former side to target Tammy Abraham this summer as they search for a new striker.
Abraham has fallen down the pecking order under Thomas Tuchel which has seen him linked with a move to the London Stadium if he continues to not get regular game time.
Should West Ham sign Abraham?
The Hammers sold their record signing, Sebastien Haller, to Ajax in January but David Moyes decided he did not want to replace the striker as he had trust in Michail Antonio to catapult them into the Champions League.
Speaking on why West Ham should be targeting Tammy Abraham and why it is that type of player the Hammers need more of, Harewood told The Transfer Tavern:
“He’s proven himself at Chelsea and it’s just a shame he’s not playing at the moment, but he would be a good addition to West Ham’s firepower if they got him.
“Obviously that’s the sort of player that West Ham need to get to improve going forward, players that are young, fit, prepared to work and want to score goals.”
West Ham only signed one new player in the January transfer window as Jesse Lingard arrived on loan from Manchester United, and he’s helped the Hammers continue their push for the top four.
The Hammers will be looking to continue their good momentum when they face Newcastle United on Saturday with the Magpies unbeaten in their previous two games.
