West Ham is preparing to beat Arsenal to the signature of Tammy Abraham this summer as he continues to struggle for playing time at Chelsea.
He was one of Frank Lampard’s most trusted men at the home of the Blues, but he has fallen down the pecking order under Thomas Tuchel.
He finished last season largely out of the club’s team and the attacker is now set to depart from the European champions.
Mirror Football had tipped him to move to Arsenal earlier and the Gunners could make good use of the England international.
However, they could also miss out on his signature with Todofichajes claiming that West Ham also wants to sign him.
The report says the Hammers need a new striker and they have made the Londoner a prime target.
Although he has fallen down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge, he still has a contract with the Blues until 2023 and they won’t be in a hurry to accept a low fee for his signature.
The report says the Gunners or any other suitor would have to pay 38m euros before they can sign him this summer.
Eddie Nketiah and Alexandre Lacazette could leave Arsenal this summer and Abraham would be a great addition to the squad as a replacement.
