This comes from reliable outlet The Athletic (via Hammers News), which would boost West Ham’s chances of landing the out-of-favour centre-forward this summer.

Citing claims from Football London and Claret and Hugh, the Hammers would reportedly need to stump up between £30-40m for the linked Englishman’s signature.

As things stand, however, it’s yet to be determined how reliant the club will be on player sales to facilitate such a transfer, which could present a stumbling block to a potential move for the forward who registered 12 goals across all competitions last term.

That being said, with Sebastien Haller having departed in the winter window, adding an additional forward option to the ranks this summer could very well be a priority for the London-based outfit, potentially prompting necessary investment from the side’s ownership.

The price being quoted of £40 million is set to fall to around £30m – £35 million and the manager has that plus some for his summer dealings with a top striker the serious priority this summer.

Abraham would prefer to stay in London and should as we all hope – and dare we say expect – qualify for Europe this afternoon the Hammers will be an attractive option for him.

Both Adam Armstrong and Ivan Toney are also among those the manager is eyeing but the Brentford striker will remain where he is should the Bees win their Championship play off final although Abraham remains the No one target regardless.
