Chelsea plan to lower their price for England striker to £35m
Chelsea have been asking for £40 million for Tammy Abraham this summer’s transfer market, but with no proposals coming in, the club have reportedly accepted they’re going to have to reduce their asking price.
The 23-year-old star appears to have no future at all at the club under Thomas Tuchel, completely falling out of favour under the German tactician, in spite of the struggles of the Blues’ other strikers last season.
The England forward is not short of suitors, with Premier League trio West Ham, Aston Villa and Arsenal all interested, but none have shown a desire to meet their substantial price tag.
The Sun report that the Blues are keen to get Tammy off their books in order to sign a new centre-forward themselves and will be prepared to cut their asking price to £35 million or lower.
West Ham are allegedly the most interested party, but for the Irons to be able to sign the number nine and offer him the wages he’ll be after, they’re looking to pay around £30 million for him.
Abraham scored six top-flight goals last season, but the star’s opportunities were severely limited after Thomas arrived at the end of January, making just three Premier League starts from there on in.
