Hammers out of the running to sign Tammy Abraham because of the reported £40m price tag, says Moyes.
Tammy Abraham Chelsea transfer continues to make the headlines due to his lack of game time under new boss Thomas Tuchel.
Manager David Moyes has quashed rumours linking Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham with a summer move to West Ham, saying the assumed price tag of £40m will 'rule us out completely'.
According to various English tabloids, the Blues' frontman is one of Moyes’ top summer targets as the Scot looks to reinforce his attack.
But the Hammers coach says the reported £40million price tag means the 23-year-old is well out of their reach.
“It would rule us out completely. We will be ruled out,” said Moyes as Sky Sports quoted. “So if that’s the figure and that’s what’s being said, we are ruled out.
“We don’t have that money, we don’t have that to buy a striker at that price, no.
“Is that sort of figure our total spend? It may well be. But you never know here.
“I don’t think we will be making a purchase of that for any one player. I’d be surprised if we were.”
