West Ham have drawn up a three-man striker target list this summer and Tammy Abraham is “top” of that list, claims a report.
The Daily Star report that unsettled Chelsea frontman Abraham is the man David Moyes wants in the summer.
Blackburn striker Adam Armstrong has also been linked with the Hammers and they are understood to have mulled over a January move for the diminutive striker. However, talk of a £25m price tag is believed to have put off Moyes and he has two other men on his radar.
In what preference of order West Ham have is unclear, but Arsenal’s Eddie Nketiah and Brentford striker Ivan Toney are also on their wanted list.
Abraham, 23, appears to be their main target though, per the report.
Despite being Chelsea’s top scorer with 12 goals this season he was left out of the squad for Sunday’s draw with Manchester United.
Thomas Tuchel admitted Abraham was “struggling with my decision” but said his only option was to win back his place.
Abraham’s Chelsea contract runs until 2023. That’s after he activated an extra year in his existing deal at the back-end of last season.
Nketiah is another striker who could be allowed to move on at Arsenal this summer. The 21-year-old is also out of contract in June 2022 and there has been no sign of an extension.
Championship hot-shot Toney is a different proposition. The 24-year-old has been progressing through the Football League and Brentford would be loathed to lose him.
The former Peterborough man has blasted 25 goals in 32 Championship games this season and is under contract until 2025. After selling Ollie Watkins to Aston Villa last summer for £28m, the Bees would want a similar fee for Toney.
