West Ham United has entered the fray for the signature of young Paraguayan midfielder Diego Gomez, according to Give Me Sport. This development potentially scuppers Brighton and Hove Albion’s initial pursuit of the 21-year-old Inter Miami player.

Brighton had previously submitted a bid for Gomez, but it reportedly fell significantly short of Inter Miami’s £20 million asking price. This has created an opening for West Ham to express their interest in the talented midfielder.

Sensing an opportunity, West Ham has made inquiries about Gomez’s availability. While Brighton might hold the initial advantage due to Gomez’s reported preference to join them, West Ham’s intervention adds a layer of intrigue to the transfer saga.

Gomez’s desire to move to Brighton likely stems from their well-established reputation for fostering young talent. However, West Ham, under manager Julen Lopetegui, could offer a similar environment for growth and development.

With negotiations between Brighton and Inter Miami still ongoing, and Gomez’s preference for the Seagulls, West Ham needs to act swiftly if they are serious about acquiring the midfielder.
