Gazzetta dello Sport reports that West Ham is in

the lead in the hunt to sign Tammy Abraham

during the transfer window.

On June 11, the Italian newspaper stated on its

website that the Hammers are leading Aston

Villa and Tottenham in the race to

sign the Roma striker this summer.

Although he is reportedly requesting €30 million

[£25.3 million], the Serie A team may accept a bid

as low as €22 million [£18.5 million] because

amortisation currently values him at €16

million [£13.5 million] on their books.

The former Chelsea forward’s future is thought

to be almost definitely in the Premier League

as he has little chance of securing an

extension of his contract in the Italian capital,

where he now makes €6 million

[£5.01 million] a year.

With David Moyes about to be replaced by Julen

Lopetegui, the Hammers will obviously need to

score more goals up front given their limited

offensive alternatives.

Last summer, Michail Antonio, 34, was once

again the best choice due to Danny Ings’ lack of

production, and Gianluca Scamacca was never

replaced despite strong connections

to several targets.

Abraham’s severe injury from the previous

season, which sidelined him for all but 12 games,

makes it risky to invest a significant

sum of money in him.

In a similar vein, he has fluctuated in front of

goal from season to season throughout his

career. He has already missed two campaigns

after scoring 27 goals in all competitions when

playing for Roma under Jose Mourinho.

In addition, he has Premier League experience

(26 goals in 89 appearances), is an England

international (three goals in 11 outings), and

should be reaching his prime at age 26.

If he can fully recover from his injury layoff

under Lopetegui, those reasons suggest a sum

below £19m may be a steal.

In light of the situation, the Irons might need to

sign two strikers this season in order to lower the

cost of acquiring a third, particularly since

Atletico Madrid’s 20-year-old Samu Omorodion

will likely cost much more after the team’s

proposal was turned down In other
