The Blues have priced the 23-year-old at £40 million and while Arsenal are ready to meet the demands, the Hammers are struggling to meet this asking price.
As per ExWHUemployee, West Ham United are keeping tabs on Borussia Monchengladbach forward, Breel Embolo as an alternative to Tammy Abraham.
“When he (Embolo) joined the German side we were very interested in him and his performances in the Euros impressed David Moyes,” ExWHUemployee said on The West Ham Way Patreon site, as quoted.
“Whilst his goal scoring at club level isn’t that impressive it is thought he has the attributes to play well in the system we use.
“As I have said Abraham isn‘t close at the moment and with limited money going on a centre back and midfielder a loan here could work for both parties.”
Chelsea willing to drop their asking price for Tammy Abraham?
The £40 million price tag is a lot for a club like West Ham United meaning Arsenal are the clear favourites to sign the 23-year-old.
But Claret & Hugh are reporting that Chelsea are now ready to drop their asking price to £30 million which happens to be a big plus for West Ham United.

The Hammers can offer Tammy Abraham a regular place in the starting line-up as well as European football next season something which the Gunners could fail to match.
Arsenal will need to get rid of Eddie Nketiah as well as Alexandre Lacazette before they can convince Tammy Abraham to join them and as things stand, the North London side are struggling to offload both these players.
Now, this price drop is an added boost for West Ham and if they can just convince the forward to choose them over Arsenal then Tammy Abraham could be playing at the London Stadium next season.
