Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham is considering his future after being left out of the matchday squad for the FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City at the weekend, according to reports in the English media.
West Ham and Leicester are believed to be the two main contenders for the England international’s signature and fans on Twitter have been debating whether signing the 23-year-old would be the right move:
Top class news if legit

I’d take him for £15M

Hopefully not to be. Abrahams is Championship standard.

He’s a 30mil player, plus like 5-10mil performance based add ons maybe at most

Toney for me, getting better & better. Top player.

Moyes will make him perform, so that’s a discount of £25m leaving £10m to get him. Seems fair.

Loan with an option to buy

There have also been claims that the Hammers may not be able to afford Abraham, but much will depend on what asking price Chelsea set for the forward.
Manager Thomas Tuchel was pretty non-committal about Abraham’s future in a pre-match press conference earlier today, stating only that he hopes the player is not too disheartened by recent selection decisions.
However, if Abraham does not get back into Tuchel’s first team plans before the end of the season, a summer departure will be almost inevitable.
