West Ham have had quite the season under David Moyes this year, with a Champions League place still very much a possibilty for the Hammers.
Moyes has instilled a gritty mentality into West Ham but he’s also got the necessary quality to ensure they’re good enough match up with and often beat, the best sides in the league.
The Hammers took the bold step in January to allow Sebastier Haller to leave. The big striker joined Ajax for around half the price the West Ham paid for him, but it’s a move which has had minimal impact on the first XI.
However, the summer is bound to represent a chance for Moyes to replace Haller and with reports this week suggesting Chelsea could sell Tammy Abraham, surely a door has opened wide?
Abraham ideal for a blossoming West Ham side
Chelsea fans want Abraham to do well. Last season, he was impressive when given the chance by Frank Lampard and is clearly someone who knows where the back of the net is.
However, it’s obvious Thomas Tuchel just does not fancy him. However you want to dress it up, the new Blues coach has simply not taken to Abraham for whatever reason.
But Chelsea’s loss can be West Ham’s gain here. The Hammers need a number nine, if anything just to give them that change and another option in attack. They have players with pace and trickery in abundance, but sometimes you need a focal point, and Abraham can be that.
A move to the Hammers might well appeal as well. European football is looking increasingly likely, and there won’t be an issue in matching wages, with West Ham hardly tight with the purse strings.
In terms of summer moves that make sense, Tammy Abraham to West Ham is right up there.
