Dean Windass spoke exclusively to Football FanCast where he revealed that Tammy Abraham would be a great fit for West Ham United.
Abraham has found his minutes more limited since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel who has often opted for Olivier Giroud to lead the line.
This has led to the academy graduate being linked with a move across London to West Ham.
The England international was handed his debut last season under Frank Lampard finding the net 15 times in just 25 starts for Chelsea.
Tuchel has rotated both strikers so far and does not yet seem settled on either of them being Chelsea’s focal point of attack, suggesting he may look to dip into the transfer market this summer.
With Michail Antonio seemingly never too far away from a period on the sidelines, David Moyes may see Abraham as the man he can rely on, especially if they are to be fighting in Europe next season.
The Hammers will have to improve their strength-in-depth to avoid injuries and burnout next season if they finish in the top six and Abraham is an already experienced striker in the Premier League as well as on the continent.
Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, Windass could not agree more that Abraham would be a great fit for West Ham.
“Yeah, I can, 100%”, when asked if he can see Abraham making the move to West Ham.
“He’s David Moyes’ type, athletic, quick and young. Is he the new Chelsea manager’s cup of tea? I don’t think so.
“So, massive fit for West Ham, bit like Carlton Cole who was upfront for West ham, that sort of type.
“He’s big, strong and scores goals. Yeah, that would fit for me. If that’s Moyes’ choice it’s a good fit for me.
“It’s one of those situations where, if Antonio leaves or whatever the situation is then yeah, they’ll be looking for a new number nine.”
Abraham has seemingly fallen down the pecking order for both club and country which he will want to put right next season and Moyes has shown what he can do with players who have a point to prove.
Chelsea would likely demand a high fee for the 23-years-old who, according to The Athletic, is disinterested in signing a new contract. The Blues may do well to cash in on their academy graduate this summer as they look to pursue Borussia Dortmund’s, Erling Haaland.
