West Ham playing with fire as Tammy Abraham’s wait game leaves the door open for Aston Villa to continue their ruthless mission
West Ham appear to be playing the waiting game for Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham. And it’s a dangerous game considering Aston Villa is on the prowl.
Hammers boss David Moyes is desperate to bring a first-class striker to London Stadium this summer.
Chelsea hitman Tammy Abraham appears to be a priority transfer target for West Ham.
The Hammers are ready to pay around Â£ 25million for the 23-year-old according to the Daily mail.
The Blues would, however, demand around Â£ 40million for Tammy (Birmingham courier).
Aston Villa would also like to sign Abraham (Birmingham courier).
West Ham’s reluctance could allow Aston Villa to win Abraham’s race
The West Midlands team have been ruthless in their transfer activity this summer, having already signed Emi Buendia for around Â£ 35million (Official website of the Villa).
With ambitious owners, Villa is a club that will surely make big improvements next season.
And it wouldn’t be surprising to see Aston Villa rush in and pay Chelsea what they want for Abraham while leaving West Ham in a mess.
We’re not saying the Hammers should just shell out Â£ 40million for the 23-year-old, but maybe we should offer Chelsea Â£ 30million now.
Hanging out and waiting for the Blues to lower their demands is certainly not the way to go. With ambitious clubs like Aston Villa sniffing, it will only end in disappointment.
Losing Tammy Abraham to the Villans would be a bitter pill to swallow. And that would undoubtedly tip the scales in favor of Dean Smith’s side next season when it comes to the pursuit of European football.
