West Ham fans have taken to Twitter to react after Southampton made contact with Chelsea over the availability of Tammy Abraham.
What’s the story?
Firstly, you might be wondering why this concerns West Ham.
As a result, it seems talkSPORT‘s news about Southampton submitting an enquiry has got nerves jangling over at the London Stadium.
Talk of Abraham joining West Ham has gone quiet ever since the report about their £30m bid emerged.
Of course, Southampton have also just received £30m of their own after Danny Ings joined Aston Villa.
With that money burning a hole in Ralph Hasenhuttl’s pocket, the West Ham fans have every right to be worried.
Surely West Ham could outmuscle Southampton?
If Abraham ends up joining Southampton over West Ham, we’ll be baffled.
Well, the Irons can offer him Europa League football, and also the chance to continue living in London, where he was born and raised.
From our point of view, we just can’t fathom a scenario in which the Saints beat the Hammers to his signature, unless West Ham shoot themselves in the foot by not offering enough money.
Given the fact West Ham haven’t signed a single player yet this summer – other than Alphonse Areola on loan – it could well come down to that.
For now, let’s see what the West Ham fans on Twitter have been saying about Southampton’s Abraham enquiry…
Imagine if they get him and then there’s us 😂😂😂 https://t.co/qvv4GRvMzm— West Ham Transfers (@westhamtransfer) August 5, 2021
Nothing to imagine, can’t believe the amount of West Ham posters I’ve seen believing we’d do anything or sign anyone. G+S are doing nothing bar freebies and loans at best. We had an opportunity to kick on this year but we will be going backwards rapidly.— Paul Davidson (@CautiousPaul) August 5, 2021
If they sign him for a reasonable fee and we lose out we are utter jokes— Tommy (@Thomaski98) August 5, 2021
Seriously though what are we doing, Moyes and Sullivan are both as bad as eachother.— Callum (@Callumfitzer__) August 5, 2021

If Abraham chooses a loan/permanent move to Southampton instead of staying in London and playing Europa League Football with @WestHam then that tells you for a 100% fact that @davidgold @karren_brady & Sullivan are totally inept when it comes to running a football club.— Mark Deal 父 (@Deal770M) August 5, 2021
