Tammy Abraham

West Ham United and Arsenal are keen to sign Tammy Abraham from Chelsea and are weighing up a move, according to The Daily Mail.

Southampton, Atalanta and Roma are also in the race to sign the England striker who has fallen out of favour at Stamford Bridge.

The 23-year-old is currently not in Thomas Tuchel’s first-team plans, and the Blues want to get rid of him this summer.

Chelsea are close to signing former striker Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan.

The Blues reportedly putting the finishing touches to complete a £97.5 million transfer to bring the Belgium international to the Premier League.

Lukaku’s arrival will push Abraham further down the pecking order. Chelsea value him at around £40m, with a host of clubs vying for his signature.

Abraham, who is on £57k-per-week wages, has a wealth of Premier League experience and is a fantastic goalscorer.

Capable of playing as a target man, Abraham is also comfortable operating alongside another striker.

Abraham would undoubtedly be a smart signing for David Moyes’ side.

West Ham badly need a striker this summer, with Michail Antonio remaining the only option for the Hammers.

Southampton are also looking to sign a striker to replace the void left by Danny Ings, while Arsenal may need a replacement for Alexandre Lacazette.

The Saints are also keeping an eye on Chelsea teenager Armando Broja, who impressed on loan at Vitesse Arnhem last season.

However, a move to Serie A could be Abraham’s best option, with his excessive wage demands likely to scupper his hopes of staying in the Premier League.
