Exclusive: Harewood backs West Ham to sign Tammy Abraham

In an exclusive interview with Football FanCast, Marlon Harewood, who played 164 times for West Ham, believes Tammy Abraham has everything that the Hammers will be looking for in new signings.

Since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel, Abraham has fallen down the pecking order despite netting 30 goals in 80 games for the Blues, with the German now favouring Kai Havertz and Timo Werner as strikers, which has led to the 23-year old being linked with a move to West Ham.

Would Abraham fit in at West Ham?

Yes, sign him up!

Abraham was trusted to lead the line for Chelsea under Frank Lampard after the striker impressed during his loan spell at Aston Villa, in which his goals helped them clinch promotion back to the Premier League via the play-offs.

Speaking on how Abraham has everything West Ham will be looking for and why things could change very quickly for the centre-forward, Harewood told FFC:

“Football is a crazy game – it can go all sorts of ways because he might get back into the Chelsea team and then stay there but at the moment, he’s not playing. It would be a good signing come the end of the season for West Ham.

“He would be a very good signing for West Ham moving forward because he can bring a whole heap of attributes that West Ham are trying to find.”

Who did West Ham lose their first league game of the season against?

The £57,692 per week striker has also had to deal with several niggling injuries since Tuchel arrived at Stamford Bridge which has not helped his cause to try to impress his new manager.

Having just booked their place in the semi-finals of the Champions League, the Blues may yet not need to finish in the top four to qualify for the competition next season, if they can win it.
