West Ham are one of the frontrunners to sign Tammy Abraham this summer, however, as reported earlier, they’re unwilling to meet Chelsea’s £40m valuation. As such, the Hammers either want his asking price to be reduced, or would prefer taking him on loan.
According to the Daily Mail, West Ham believe that a correct valuation of Abraham should be closer to £25m, with David Moyes’ side also looking at alternative targets like Gaëtan Laborde and Patson Daka should a move for the 23-year-old fail to materialize. There are other Premier League sides interested in Abraham’s services as well, with Leicester City, Aston Villa and Wolverhampton Wanderers said to have an interest, while Serie A sides, AS Roma and AC Milan have also been linked.
There have also been rumors that Chelsea could look to use Tammy as a makeweight to bring Declan Rice back to Stamford Bridge, but West Ham would only entertain an astronomical bid, as per the report.
One other club who have been rumored to have an interest in Tammy are Newcastle United. But according to the Athletic, they are apparently out of the running since they can’t meet Chelsea’s asking price, while the Blues are also unlikely to entertain any loan bids.
