Hammers in talks with Gomez’s agent

West Ham are tonight working fast with Maxi Gomez’s agents to steal the player from under the noses of Valencia.

The Celta Vito striker is represented by one of the biggest representation group’s in the world – Stellar – who look after the player’s interests.

And although – as reported earlier – Valencia believe they are close to getting the player, the Hammers are confident they can get things sorted in their favour.

However, the big snag may be for the Irons that Gomez has consistently declared that he wants to remain in Spain.

Stellar – headed by legendary agent Jonathon Barnett – have been looking after the player for some time and have worked with West Ham on various deals.

And with the Hammers set to stage a £36 million straight cash offer for the 22-year-old as they bid to close the £22.5 million Marko Arnautovic sale to China, they still hold hopes they will get their man.

  1. Please get this long saga over the line!!!

  2. Icing on the cake. Gomez would make Hammers very exciting next season.

  3. Hope we can get this sorted out now so he has time to gel with the team and we can hit the ground running.

  4. Get it over the line boys then get rid.

  5. Goodbye Arnie Hello Maxi… there’s a song in there somewhere!

  6. But then other reports say he has agreed terms with Valencia & they would give £15m plus Santi Mina who is a good young CF & another player on loan.
    Surprised we go in right w £40m not £35m, also that we haven’t offered Chicharito tho he has been a proper professional unlike Arnie. I like Chic suits a two up front or strong #10 but if he goes to LA Liga he will take wage cut.
    Gomez & Rondon would be great.
    And I’m very happy to see us linked w Wput Weghorst I’ve been on about him since last summer at AZ w 22-25 goals he broke Bundesliga record w 17 goals & 7 assists for debut w Wolfsburg. I’d much prefer him to Magera or Mitrovic & he only has a €18m buyout which is a Snip for hand in 25 goals in 34 games at 26 good age is around 6’4 but quick on break physical, great hold up, link up, really good with playing in ground good w both feet & head, huge threat in air for goals & defense, very rounded can aloa drift wings. Last 4 seasons has double digit goals & showed he can STEPUP & leadline huge for Wolfsburg in finishing 7th & van leas the line.
    If Gomez doesn’t happen Weghorst would be my 2nd choice. I love Haller #10/#9 so well rounded but w Jovic going & Rebix maybe too he would cost over £50m & they wouldn’t want to sell.

    Good by Arnie & your brother you will be miserable in China

  7. Gomez great .We need however to strengthen our defense as this was a major problem last year

  8. Get the deal done or move on been going on too long
