West Ham are looking to sign a new striker in the January transfer window, and they have earmarked Tammy Abraham as a potential option, as per Calciomercato. The Hammers could face strong competition from Aston Villa, Fulham and Brentford to sign the Roma striker.
The 26-year-old joined the Gialorossi two years ago from Chelsea for a fee of around £34m, and the Blues are also looking to take him back to the Premier League.
Abraham – who won the Champions League with Chelsea in 2020-21 – has scored 36 goals in 107 games for Roma, and 126 club career goals.
He hasn’t played a single game this season as he is still recovering from the ACL injury that he suffered towards the end of last season.
Should West Ham move for Abraham?
The Hammers are in dire need of a striker. Michail Antonio is approaching the end of his career, and his early season form has tailed off.
This could be his last season at the club, and West Ham need to sign a quality striker.
Gianluca Scamacca proved to be a huge flop since joining from Sassuolo, and he was sold in the summer. Danny Ings has been equally disappointing.
Mohammed Kudus is capable of playing up front, but that is not an ideal position for him. He brings more to the game by playing wide.
Abraham could be a good signing for the Hammers. He would love to return to the Premier League and has the experience to thrive in England.
He scored 27 goals for Roma in his first season and also netted 26 goals in a season for Aston Villa in the Championship.
He can score plenty of goals, but doubts remain about how quickly he can regain his old form after a long-term injury.
