On the topic of the Chelsea striker, Ex admitted he would be top of his shortlist for targets this summer.
He said: “For me, it’d be Abraham and I think that’s the one I probably will get the most stick. But no, he’s the one that’s proven himself in the Premier League, he’s an England international, he’s played for a top club all of his life. (1:10:18)
“He’s good mates with Declan Rice. I think there’s so many reasons that we could sign him and he would end up being a great signing for us. So he would be the one for me.”
Abraham has made 20 appearances for Chelsea in the Premier League this season but has only found the back of the net six times in those games (via Transfermarkt).
Do you think Abraham would be a good signing?
The £36m-rated England international has not played a full 90 minutes of football in the league since Tuchel arrived at Stamford Bridge back in January which has some believing he may look for a new club in the summer.
TIF Thoughts on Abraham’s future…
Since Tuchel arrived, Abraham’s career at the Blues has taken somewhat of a turn with the 23-year-old looking like an outcast in the Chelsea squad.
If he is to leave this summer, West Ham could prove to be a great move for him in a variety of ways. From a personal viewpoint, it would mean he would not have to up sticks and move as he would be staying in London and from a footballing point he would be joining a side that has taken a massive step forward this season with the Hammers challenging Chelsea for fourth place in the Premier League.
