Report: How much money Moyes has to spend on a new striker for West Ham this summer
West Ham United have £30 million to spend on a new striker this summer, EuroSport suggest.
West Ham are said to be very interested in Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham, but it seems unlikely that they will be able to afford him.
Abraham is outside of their price range by £10 million, which could cause West Ham to look elsewhere.
In fairness, £30 million is still a healthy budget for the Hammers to be given.
However, there will be some who surely question why they can’t stretch to reach Abraham’s asking price.
Abraham is a proven Premier League scorer and would surely be a pivotal player for them if he did join.
An important addition
David Moyes will be desperate to get the signing of a new number nine over the line, after missing out in January.
West Ham sold Sebastien Haller but weren’t able to replace him, leaving Michail Antonio as their only recognised senior striker.
For all of Antonio’s strengths he isn’t the most natural finisher, and landing a goalscorer could be key if they are to push even higher up the table.
West Ham will also have to manage their squad carefully with European football on offer, so having the ability to rotate will be crucial for Moyes as the campaign progresses.
