ExWHUemployee reveals first choice striker signing
Sharing an update on the club’s striker pursuit, Ex now believes that Abraham is the first choice striker signing for Moyes – coming amid his contract dispute at Chelsea.
The Athletic first reported that the Englishman is not interested in penning a new deal at Stamford Bridge, and it now seems like West Ham are prepared to take full advantage this summer.
Abraham is arguably a proven goal scorer in the Premier League, having netted 21 goals in his last 37 starts for Chelsea over the last two seasons (WhoScored).

West Ham have also been touted as the perfect destination by former Scotland boss Alex McLeish, who hailed him as a ‘phenomenal player’ when speaking to Football Insider last month.
Still young at 23-years-old and a formidable physical presence at 6 foot 2, GSB may have to invest heavily for his signature.
Transfermarkt value him at around £36 million, but if West Ham do launch a summer bid, it remains to be seen what Chelsea may demand.
