Chelsea set price tag for Tammy Abraham

Chelsea have set their asking price for Tammy Abraham amid interest from West Ham United and Arsenal.



The Englishman was the club's joint top-scorer last term with 12 goals, but he played just 16 minutes between March and May.

He is now deemed surplus to requirements, and Sky Sports News claims that the Blues are willing to sanction his sale this summer.

They have set an asking price of around £40m for the marksman. It is unclear whether any club will pay the transfer fee.

The Gunners have been heavily linked with Abraham's services, but they are keen on negotiating an initial loan agreement.

The north London club are keeping their striker options open. They have also made a surprise approach for Lautaro Martinez.

Inter Milan are reluctant to sell the Argentine, but could change their stance if a significant bid of around £80m is made.

Martinez has entered the final two years of his Inter contract. The Serie A champions have yet to negotiate a new deal.
