Report: West Ham know Arsenal could try to sign 'unbelievable' player if he's available for £30m
West Ham United know that if Tammy Abraham’s asking price drops by another £5 million then Arsenal could get involved in trying to sign him from Chelsea, according to The Sun.
West Ham are said to have a strong interest in signing Abraham, but Arsenal are also keen on the centre-forward who has been called ‘unbelievable by Jack Grealish (Instagram).
Unfortunately for Chelsea, their asking price has so far put off both interested parties.
As a result, Thomas Tuchel’s side are said to have cut Abraham’s asking price by £5 million, after previously having wanted £40 million.
Even for that money he could be too expensive for both Arsenal and West Ham though.
West Ham apparently would be willing to pay £30 million for Abraham, but they know that if Chelsea cut the striker’s value to that sort of figure then Arsenal will also make a move.
£30 million signing
That complicates matters, as the lure of a move to Arsenal could be too much to resist for Abraham.
The Athletic has already claimed that the England international forward would be willing to join Mikel Arteta’s side.
West Ham could offer him both a starting place and European football.
But it would be very interesting to see which club Abraham would pick out of the pair, if they both were to submit offers for him.
