David Moyes has ruled West Ham out of the running to sign Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham.
Abraham is understood to be one of Moyes’ top summer targets as he attempts to bolster his strikeforce.
But the hammers boss says Abraham’s reported £40m price tag means the 23-year-old is well out of his range.
“It would rule us out completely. We will be ruled out,” said Moyes. “So if that’s the figure and that’s what’s being said, we are ruled out.
“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.”
“We can’t afford to drop too many points,” said Moyes.
“We need to go to Burnley and play well. It’s been a difficult hunting ground for us in recent seasons, so we are going to try and put on a good show and get a result.
“We beat them earlier in the season but the game was very tight. We need to go up there and do it again.”
