Tammy Abraham's time with Chelsea could be over this summer, the academy player has lost his place in the Blues' starting eleven with Thomas Tuchel's arrival and the Blues might be looking to cash in to chase an elite center-forward.
The 23-year-old striker played a pivotal role under Frank Lampard but failed to prove such worth to the German boss that took the helm in January. Abraham, however, has shown talent and still has a bright future ahead of him, which is why he won't be lacking in interested teams.
Chelsea are reportedly considering selling Abraham in the current transfer window as he could help them to raise funds to go after Erling Haaland or Harry Kane. Three Premier League rivals could be landing the forward for the 2021/22 season.
London rivals Arsenal have reportedly become the latest side to join the race for Tammy Abraham. With Chelsea offering the striker to different clubs, the Gunners have considered making a move to boost their attack, according to The Telegraph.
With Alexandre Lacazette already at 30 years of age and linked with a move away from the Emirates while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang often performs as a left-winger, Abraham's arrival to north London would make sense. Arsenal, however, would need to sell to afford his over $50 million price tag. Abraham admitted to being an Arsenal fan during his childhood and now he could wear the colors of his boyhood club.
The Hammers are reportedly in front of the queue to sign Abraham, though. Following an impressive 2020/21 campaign which resulted in a Europa League spot for them, West Ham are now looking to upgrade their squad to repeat such a good season.
According to The Mirror, Tammy Abraham is keen on joining David Moyes' side over any other option as of now. Chelsea wouldn't mind selling him to crosstown rivals as long as they meet their demands. However, Arsenal's interest could change Abraham's mind.
A less likely candidate, Tottenham have also been linked with the Chelsea striker as Harry Kane's future is up in the air. The Blues have made Abraham available for them as they try to make money from his departure before chasing a world-class No. 9.
Spurs' priority seems to be retaining Kane, though, as the club's chairman Daniel Levy is reluctant to sell him to Premier League opponents. Still, should they end up losing their superstar, Abraham could become a stronger candidate to fill his shoes.
