Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham one of West Ham’s potential striker targets for summer

Abraham struggling under Tuchel

Tammy Abraham has had a fairly strange season so far.

With 12 goals, the 23-year-old is currently Chelsea’s top scorer in all competitions.

However, since Thomas Tuchel took the reins at Stamford Bridge, the hitman has struggled for regular football.

In the Premier League, for example, Abraham is yet to see out more than 45 minutes under the German.

Abraham was also completely omitted from the Blues’ matchday squad to take on Manchester United on Sunday, with Tuchel, in his post-match comments, having appeared to suggest that the striker was fit and available.

West Ham eyeing Abraham

Tuchel’s treatment of Abraham, in turn, has resulted in speculation surrounding his future at Stamford Bridge coming to the fore online.

The Telegraph reported on Monday that a number of clubs are monitoring the forward’s situation.

And now, it appears as though at least one Premier League side are expressing a keen interest in Abraham.

According to the Daily Star, the English international is on West Ham’s list of potential attacking targets for the summer.

This comes with the Hammers having been linked with a number of strikers during the winter window, and David Moyes having confirmed his side’s pursuit of offensive reinforcements.

As well as Abraham, Arsenal’s Eddie Nketiah and Brentford’s Ivan Toney are believed to be on West Ham’s list:
