Chelsea reportedly reluctant to sell Abraham to West Ham
Chelsea reportedly want to offer Tammy Abraham to Borussia Dortmund as part of a deal for the German club’s much sought after striker Erling Haaland.
West Ham want the England international and have been tipped to table a big-money bid..
The 23-year-old is apparently keen on the move as it would ensure he stays in London.
However, the Daily Mirror reports that Chelsea would rather offload Abraham to Dortmund as part of the Blues’ bid to capture Haaland.
West Ham manager David Moyes is said to be an admirer of Abraham and believes the England international will be a much needed addition to a squad that struggled in the absence of their attacking focal point Michail Antonio last season.
Abraham struggled for playing time under Blues boss Thomas Tuchel in the second half of last season.
The German preferred Kai Havertz and Timo Werner as his forwards, even using Mason Mount as a false nine rather than select Abraham.
And with the club looking to sign another striker, Abraham’s future at Chelsea has become increasingly uncertain.
He has also been linked with Aston Villa, where he previously spent a season on loan, and Wolves, but reports suggest he would prefer to remain in the capital if he leaves Stamford Bridge.
