West Ham remain keen on Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham, who is said to be growing increasingly ‘angry’ and frustrated’ at life under Thomas Tuchel.
That is according to the Daily Mail, who report the Hammers are one of the clubs really interested in taking Abraham off Chelsea’s hands this summer if they can.
The Mail’s report focusses on Tuchel’s comments on Abraham. The Chelsea boss, admitting that he feels for the England man and that he has long conversations with Abraham about his role at Stamford Bridge.
But with little to no game-time to show for his work at the moment, it’s looking increasingly likely that the Hammers may get the chance to enter the bidding war for Abraham. The young striker has 26 PL goals to his name, with six of those coming this season.
David Moyes is looking for a new number nine after selling Sebastien Haller in the January window. The signing of Jesse Lingard has worked out brilliantly, but Moyes is still looking for an out and out forward. Abraham, then, could well be his man.

And why would he? He’d hardly done anything wrong really and has simply been cast aside by Tuchel for whatever reason.
There is no way Kai Havertz is offering more than Abraham would in that role. It just seems that Tuchel doesn’t favour the traditional big striker, with Olivier Giroud another also struggling for minutes.
West Ham would be ideal for Abraham. They have a good squad with exciting players. Further, he’d also get plenty of minutes and has already proven he can score at this level.
