Flocking to Twitter, many West Ham United fans have fumed in response to ExWHUemployee’s update involving striker target Tammy Abraham.
Abraham has been linked with a move to east London for quite some time now as the Hammers continue their chase for a new striker.
Reports as far back as April explained West Ham’s interest in signing the 23-year-old but his mooted £40 million valuation will be an issue.
Irons boss David Moyes admitted that they wouldn’t be able to afford a figure that high but claims have surfaced recently of a possible price drop – propelling West Ham into pole position (Football Insider).
ExWHUemployee, sharing the latest on his Twitter feed, has now dropped his own update on the Irons’ pursuit.
The club insider explains that Abraham is still a target for Moyes but his salary demands have somewhat put West Ham off, with the player currently earning around £140,000-per-week (Claret & Hugh).
He also says that other options are ‘being explored’ as a result.
Flocking to this news, many West Ham fans have voiced their discontent on social media in reply to Ex – find their verdicts from Twitter down below.
West Ham fans fume over Ex update on Abraham
“If they’re not willing to pay that kind of wage then what hope we got offering Rice a better deal”
“No way can we be going an entire season with Antonio”
“Wow we need a major striker signing”
“Mad to think they’re not prioritising a forward, I can’t be the only one watching yesterday & fearing the worst watching Antonio.”
“It’s insane not to prioritise a striker, Antonio can’t stay fit for more than a couple of months at a time maximum”
“This club is ridiculous sometimes. Agreed we are short in defense, but not as short as the one makeshift striker we have. We need 2,and we are dithering in signing one. Not looking good.”
“Main position we need is a proper striker but lets concentrate on getting a cb typical West Ham”
