David Moyes has excluded West Ham from the race to sign Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham given his £ 40million valuation.
Abraham has been linked with a number of Premier League clubs in recent weeks after falling out of favor under Thomas Tuchel at Stamford Bridge, starting just two league games since the German took over as head coach and not having completed 90 minutes.
The England international is said to spark interest from Aston Villa, Leicester and West Ham, with recent reports suggesting Chelsea are ready to sell the striker for around £ 40million.
Abraham finished as Chelsea’s top scorer last season with 18 goals in all competitions, as he has scored an impressive 12 times in just 18 starts for the West Londoners this season.
Moyes has now discussed the Hammers’ potential interest in signing the 23-year-old, excluding his side from the race and admitting that Abraham’s award makes him an unrealistic addition to the London Stadium next season.
“It would exclude us completely. We will be excluded, ”Moyes said via Sky Sports. “So if that’s the number and that’s what it says, we’re left out.
“We don’t have that money, we don’t have that to buy a striker at this price, no. Does this figure correspond to our total expenses? It just might be. But you never know here.
