The Hammers are well and truly in the market for a frontman to replace Sebastien Haller this summer and the 23-year-old has been tipped as a likely candidate.
Despite Irons’ boss David Moyes all but ruling out a £40million move for the ace, speculation continues as the west London club actively pursue a sensational swoop for Erling Haaland.

Jones said: “Tammy wants to leave, he wants to join West Ham. West Ham can’t at the moment afford £40million to sign him. The player would prefer to stay in London and West Ham are a pretty good fit.”
Abraham scored 12 goals in all competitions last season before falling out of favour with new manager Thomas Tuchel.

Valued at £34.2million and under contract until 2023 at Stamford Bridge (Transfermarkt), signing the Englishman even at the previously mooted £40million mark would be good business from the Hammers.
At just 23 there is still time for Abraham to develop further and a move to West Ham would give the Londoner ample opportunities to do so.
