According to a report by ‘transfer insider‘ Dean Jones, writing for Eurosport, West Ham and Southampton have both tentatively enquired over Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham – coming after recent reports suggested that he was on GSB’s radar (ExWHUemployee).
Abraham, who is currently at the centre of a contract debacle at the west London club, with Chelsea apparently unwilling to match his wage requests following recent discussions (ExWHUemployee), could leave Stamford Bridge this summer.
West Ham have made tentative Abraham enquiry
Jones, writing for Eurosport, has followed on from these claims by offering an update – with West Ham having tentatively enquired about his availability along with Southampton.
Building on the reported interest in Abraham, while there has been nothing ‘concrete‘ according to Jones, the Hammers are one of only two clubs to enquire over his potential availability.
However, given he is demanding around £120,000-per-week, he could become West Ham’s highest earner if he were to make the move to east London.
Transfer Tavern take
GSB failed to replace Sebastien Haller when he left at the start of January, with the summer window coming as an opportunity to supply much needed strength in depth.
Time will tell who West Ham turn to, but these recent claims indicate Abraham has emerged as a candidate.
Rio Ferdinand once labelled him ‘Drogba-esque‘ for a brilliant piece of skill in the Champions League against Lille (BT Sport via the Sun), and if West Ham do end up signing him, Irons supporters may hold hope he can replicate that kind of form.
