Athletic: Tammy Abraham very likely to push to leave Chelsea, with West Ham readying loan offer

Chelsea have set a £40 million asking price for striker Tammy Abraham this summer for any interested clubs, and there are expected to be a few.

However, one interested club, West Ham, are hoping that other interested clubs will be put off by the high fee, meaning they will be able to land him on a loan deal.

This is according to information from The Ahtletic this morning, who are also claiming that the England international is ‘very like’ to push for a move to leave Stamford Bridge this summer.

They say that Abraham is refusing to discuss a new deal with Chelsea after his real lack of game recently and reports of the club looking to buy a big name new striker, with Erling Haaland and Romelu Lukaku being mentioned.

It will certainly be a developing story over the summer and one to keep a very close eye on as we move into the transfer window soon.
