Bobby Zamora predicts striker’s decision over possible West Ham move

Posted by

Former Fulham striker Bobby Zamora believes that Tammy Abraham would not be interested in joining West Ham United.

Abraham, 24, left Chelsea and joined Italian side Roma last summer in a deal worth £36m.

Since joining the Serie A side, the English forward has gone on to feature in 29 matches, in all competitions, scoring 15 and assisting a further four goals, along the way.

However, although Abraham has been with Roma for less than a year, there has been some speculation that West Ham United may try and tempt the Englishman back to the Premier League.

Discussing the Hammers’ need for a new striker to provide competition for Michail Antonio, Zamora, who spoke on the ‘All to Play For’ podcast, said: “I don’t think Tammy would want to go there. I don’t he think he would now. Personally I think in his mind he thought ‘I’m a big, big player and I should go to a big, big club’.

“He went to Aston Villa and did his thing, but I think that was when he needed games. Now I think he thought he should’ve been playing at Chelsea week-in week-out and I don’t think West Ham would entice him enough.

“Forget the money side of it, I don’t think they’re a big enough name.”
