Moyes: West Ham can’t afford £​40m deal for Chelsea striker

West Ham United manager, David Moyes, has revealed the club cannot afford to sign Tammy Abraham.

The Chelsea striker is reportedly one of Moyes’ top transfer targets.

But with the Blues demanding at least £40m for their academy graduate, Moyes says the Hammers won’t make a move.

“It would rule us out completely. We will be ruled out,” said Moyes. “So if that’s the figure and that’s what’s being said, we are ruled out.

“We don’t have that money, we don’t have that to buy a striker at that price, no.

“Is that sort of figure our total spend? It may well be. But you never know here.

“I don’t think we will be making a purchase of that for any one player. I’d be surprised if we were.”
