Hammers told which striker to sign

Aleksander Mitrovic took second place

Maxi Gomez remains a big favourite among the fans as their choice of striker for the new Hammers season.

The Celta Vigo hitman has been tracked by the club since before the January window and was close to joining the club at that time.

However, we were unable to get the La Liga club to agree that we should sign him and loan him back in order to help the club in their relegation fight.

Since then there have been rumours that everybody from Spurs to Barcelona are keen but the Hammers remain the favourites to get him if he moves at all.

Other names have been in the frame and these include Michy Batshuayi, Aleksander Mitrovic, and Salomon Rondon.

The fans however, have been almost dismissive of the other three and still want Gomez at the London Stadium next season.

ClaretandHugh asked its followers which of the four they would prefer and 1,375 of over 2k voting went for the Vigo front man.

A total of 328 pushed Mitrovic into second place, Batshuyai gathered 233 votes and Rondon managed just 119.

  1. Gomez has to be the man we get we should go for it and make him a priority !

  2. No No No to Mitrovic… Nowhere near good enough for taking us to this promised ‘next level’.
    If the club are serious about moving up to challenge for European places the bar needs to be set far higher.

  3. I hadn’t heard of Gomez before our interest in him but I hadn’t heard of Balbuena or Diop and so I trust in Pelle & Husillos. If they want him we should go for it but think Mitrovitc would be an incredible signing for us too. Either Mitrovic or Gomez and Ballotelli on a Free, that gives us Arnie, Mit / Gomez, Ballotelli and Silva (assuming Chich goes) with those 4 I think the forward line would be greatly improved on last season.

  4. Dunno why rondon is so low on this list… class player

    • Agreed – especially ahead of a player who has already rejected us on more than one occasion and clearly doesn’t’ t want to play for us.

  5. Rondon is very underrated but is a very good player.
