Chelsea Want To P/X Tammy-He Says No! No! No!

Chelsea want to offer Tammy Abraham to Borussia Dortmund as part of their huge bid to sign Erling Haaland, the £150 Million valued 20 year old is the top summer transfer target for the Champions League winners, ahead of Romelu Lukaku and Tottenham's Harry Kane.

However Dortmund are determined to keep Haaland having just sold Jadon Sancho to Manchester United, meaning they don't need to sell Haaland, word coming from the Bundesliga club is that they have absolutely no intention of selling Haland this year. Therefore talk of using Tammy Abraham as a 'makeweight' in the deal for Haaland is purely academic, all it will do is further the bad feeling between the England striker and his manager, Thomas Tuchel which has been 'strained' ever since Tuchel's arrival at the Bridge.

Aston Villa and West Ham are among the clubs keen to sign Abraham either on loan or permanently ahead of the coming campaign, after all, Tammy was Chelsea'a joint top scorer despite being sidelined by Tuchel. It is believed Abraham is more keen on a move to the London Stadium than Villa Park despite having had a very successful loan spell at Villa previously, but all of the clubs interested have been told that Chelsea want to include 23 year old Abraham as a makeweight in their bid to land Haaland.

So what does Abraham think? Well, uniquely we at Org have a genuine inside line that C&H, HM,WHZ and all the other Hammers sites don't have, that is because our venerable editor used to mentor Tammy and his younger brother Timmy. Take it from us, Tammy is FURIOUS with the treatment metered out to him by Tuchel AND his boyhood club Chelsea.

Talk of being used as a makeweight is the final nail in the coffin for Tammy's career at Chelsea, having been snubbed for the Champions League final AND the FA Cup final was bad enough, but due to his lack of game time he was not selected to be a part of England's Euro 2020 squad, that omission hurt him deeply!

So, the player wants to come to and join up with his old pal Declan Rice at the London Stadium, the Elephant in the room is Chelsea's valuation of Abraham. If used a a part exchange he is valued at an eye watering £50 Million, however that figure is greatly inflated due to the equally inflated asking price for Haaland by Borussia Dortmund.

Even the more realistic price of £40 Million is way above Hammers current budget for a striker, which is rumoured to be around £25 Million, however all is not lost. It appears that if Borussia Dortmund stay firm and don't enter into negotiations with Chelsea over Haaland, that the West Londoners will be prepared to do a 'try before you buy' deal with the Irons for Tammy.

This is the preferred 'West Ham Way' when it comes to transfers recently, and so far it has been very successful. Such a move might suit all parties, Chelsea will eventually either get the money they want, or have a player return to them having greatly enhanced his value, just as has happened to Jesse Lingard following his loan spell at the London Stadium.

The added bonus for Chelsea being that they can charge a substantial loan fee have all of Tammy's wages paid and ensure the player cannot play against them for their London RIVALS, even the latter statement sounds surreal doesn't it? Tammy Abraham and Jesse Lingard are the two main targets for David Moyes, although fans will be extremely frustrated at the apparent lack of activity, should both players be wearing the Claret and Blue of WEST HAM at the beginning of next season, fans' spirits will be sky high, get it done Moysie! - Ed Jnr

Apparently Arsenal are now in the race to sign him as well. Rumour has it that Abraham is also an Arsenal and Thierry Henry fan. So let's move on to the next bit of gossip. That is all it is about until there is actually a pen put to paper!!
