Maxi Gomez bids – The truth

West Ham has confirmed tht a reported bid for Maxi Gomez is essentially correct.

Sky Sports reported that identical bids of £29 million had been lodged by the Irons and Valencia earlier in the day.

But CandH has been told the Hammers have bid in the region £25m although it is not known what offer Valencia has tabled for the Celta Vigo striker.

While Gomez would get to play in the Champions League with Valencia, West Ham are able to offer him significantly higher wages approaching £100,000 per week which would make him one of the highest paid players at the London Stadium.

And we were told Mario Hussilos is understood to negotiating with both Celta Vigo on the fee and Gomez ‘s representatives on personal terms as he bids to get the transfer over the line.

Owners David Sullivan and David Gold are giving Pellegrini and Hussilos their full support and financial backing to do what it takes to make the deal happen.

They are expecting more sales from the club but may well be ready to stump up further cash if it’s required to outbid Valencia.

  1. This player would show Hammers mean real
    Business and could put the club into Europe
    A very sound investment
    We should go all out to get him

  2. If we can get Gomez and a top left back along with Fornals we would have a squad that are able to compete with the best and may surprise a few people coyi

  3. Make it happen ! ⚒

  4. If he is asking about arnie then it looks like he is leaning towards us ..hopefully

  5. With ozz all the way here Lets get gomez in and im sure pelle didnt get in diop to sell again and theres no need for him to going to a club no longer a top club now taken over by city. Left back and centre mid def a must then we can sell cresswell reid chich arnie and byron give hugil away and possibly lanzini might depart also with sanchez another hugil mistake but cheaper . Done deals and it looks like sully has learnt his lesson leaving someone who knows his aims and knowledge is a top guy . So well done david sullivan too

    • Could not agree anymore Razor I wonder if Lanzini’s injury has taken something away from his game that’s why Fornals has been signed. With a decent leftback and central def mid we will have some squad try picking a starting eleven if all fit not easy mate. Its not often we have been in this position to well done Sullivan for letting the management team gat on with it

  6. Info on joan Jordan please

  7. that would mean bye bye to Chica i suppose, to get some $ back. Antonio as an extra striker. i think we need both a left and right back and i honestly hope Reidy stays fit and stays on to be our 4th cd. what a bench we would have if this comes off. fingers x’d

  8. I’m all for Chich,Hugill,Sanchez,Byron and if necessary Arnie to leave.
    Keep Masaratu and Cressie .
    Gomez ,Fonnels,Jordon,and a couple more please.
    Time to keep our good players.
    Man u can keep their hands off Issa Diop as well.
