Many West Ham United fans are unhappy after it was revealed that the Hammers want to sign Tammy Abraham on loan rather than buy him in the summer.
This season has been a fantastic one for the Irons, but they have overachieved given their distinct lack of strikers. Sebastien Haller was sold to Ajax in January, meaning that David Moyes has only had Michail Antonio as a natural centre-forward ever since.
As such, one of the Hammers’ main targets for the summer should be a striker. They are believed to be interested in a move for Chelsea striker Abraham, who has made just 22 appearances in the Premier League so far this term (Transfermarkt), but they would like to loan him in rather than buying him outright (The Athletic).
The Blues reportedly want £40m to let the England international leave Stamford Bridge permanently, a figure which Moyes has already admitted the Irons cannot pay.
Would you take Abraham on loan?
The news attracted plenty of attention from West Ham supporters, and they took to social media platform Twitter to share their thoughts.
One took aim at club co-owner David Sullivan for the perceived frugality, who along with the other GSB partners has often been a lightning rod for criticism from the Irons’ fan base. Loan deals for the likes of Said Benrahma and Jesse Lingard have become common at the club in recent months.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the Abraham news below
“Sick of these loans tbh, Moyes will get him playing like Harry Kane we have to hear Chelsea fans saying “30 million + Rice” for an entire year and then we probably won’t sign him in the end and then he will go back to Chelsea and all we have done is develop our rivals player”
“Not a chance we will get him on loan when there will be clubs lining up for him with cash to pay . Board shafting the manager already”
“Of course we do, that’s Sullivan all over”
“But a team like Villa will be prepared to pay the money for him. Sullivan all over. “
“For a couple of weeks I forgot Gold and Sullivan ran our club…”
“This screams David Sullivan”
