Hammers Gomez hopes rise

West Ham’s hopes of signing Celta Vigo’s Maxi Gomez on the cheap rose yesterday as his club,  relegation threatened Celta Vigo were beaten by Real Madrid 2-0.

It’s now well known there is a clause in the striker’s contract which allows him to leave for 22 million should the club drop out of La Liga 1.

And the defeat in Madrid brought that reality a little closer with Vigo remaining in the relegation spots at third off bottom.

The team face a crucial game next weekend when the team immediately above them, Villareal, visit.

Should Villareal today beat second off bottom Rayo Vallecano they can go four points clear of Vigo ahead of next weekend’s game.

Meanwnhile Hammers insiders have made it clear to CandH that stories the striker is fancied by Barcelona are little more than “agent talk.”

A well placed source – speaking to us by telephone – said: “We developed a good relationship with Celta Vigo during talks in summer and the suggestions of Barcelona smack of agent talk.”

  1. Had not scored for weeks though.Still think Hernandez has a future with us but Carroll and Perez are surely out in the Summer and the Arnie saga has damaged his form too.Unless he improves in the last few games it looks like China will indeed be his destiny.That January debacle has backfired on him and his form is unrecognisable from before.

  2. Gomez actually looks good ok the lady weeks have not been great but that’s off the back of our interests in January . Hammer 64 I agree Perez , Carroll should leave and I think Arnie needs to play out of his skin until the end of the year . I can’t agree on Hernandez unless he starts scoring regularly . We need some reinforcements in the summer that’s for sure ! Need players with the energy and mentality to win more consistently so board Pelligrini needs more money to improve us again . COYI ⚒
