And Chelsea need to free up space in their squad, as well as the wage budget, to get a deal over the line.

It’s believed academy star Abraham, 23, will be allowed to leave Stamford Bridge for around £40m.

West Ham are known to be keen on the England international, who has 30 goals in 81 games for the Blues.

Abraham has fallen way down the pecking order since Tuchel replaced Frank Lampard in January.

And he is set to be joined out the door by fellow forward Olivier Giroud.
