Jack Rosser, the London Evening Standard’s West Ham United correspondent, insists that Tammy Abraham would be a superb signing for the Hammers, and would offer something different to Michail Antonio.
Chelsea are reported to be willing to consider bids for the striker in this transfer window as they look to thin out their squad.
Abraham fell out of favour under the management of Thomas Tuchel, making just 12 starts in the Premier League last term.
Should West Ham sign Abraham?
Abraham has a good record of hitting the back of the net, though, and still managed to score six goals last term; in total he has netted 30 times in 82 games for the Blues.
And Rosser believes West Ham should look to bring him in this summer, even if he costs as much as £40m, as has been reported, in a bid to add both real quality and genuine competition to their forward line.
Speaking to Football FanCast, Rosser said: “He’s also a slightly different player to what Moyes has through the middle at the moment with Antonio but I suppose they could be good foils for each other, good competition as well.
“He’s a fantastic, fantastic all round striker, his movement is fantastic, his finishing maybe could do with a bit of improvement but I’d say it’s much better than Antonio’s. So that would be an upgrade there.”
