Tammy Abraham on the move?

Leicester City and West Ham United could go head-to-head to land the signature of Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham this summer.

The England international was impressive during the early phase of the campaign, registering 12 goals across all competitions.

However, he has struggled for game time since Thomas Tuchel replaced Frank Lampard as manager, and has hardly played from March.

Abraham has earned just 16 minutes of first-team football over the past three months, and he is widely expected to leave the Blues.

Both Leicester City and West Ham United are prepared to offer him an escape route to the striker, who is still the Blues' joint top-scorer this season.

The Blues value their striker at around £40m, but the price tag could be lowered this summer with his lack of playing time.

Abraham has two years remaining on his contract with the Blues. He has no plans to discuss a new deal with his current struggles for game time.
