Maxi Gomez’s form slides after Irons interest

Hammers striker target Max Gomez appears to be suffering from the same sort of form loss as we are currently seeing from Marko Arnautovic.

And it’s no coincidence surely that both players have been struggling since being linked with big money moves to China on the one hand and the Hammers on the other.

Arnie’s return to action doesn’t need to be recounted but the £45 million rated Celta Vigos striker’s certainly does.

With his club in 16th place in La Liga and still involved in a relegation battle he appears to have gone completely off the boil.

He has managed just one goal during January as the club has struggled through an awful spell of form which has seen them win just one game from the last six.

And things hit a new low over the weekend when Gomez managed to see yellow twice in the 37th minute and was sent off.

Don’t tell me the January window doesn’t destabilise players involved in transfer situations!

  1. Most managers would agree about the January window and most fans.

    I don’t know why the whole window isn’t shortened to a week, most of the deals are completed in the final days of the final week the rest of it is just destabilising. So cut out all the aggro and focus the minds of the clubs selling or buying.

  2. I would make January a window for emergency loan signings only or maybe for players who have a lack of game time and have not managed to play a set number of games for their first team. (Not sure what number of games you would set that figure at but it wouldn’t include players who have not played through injury) Therefore it would be an opportunity for players who are not getting games to go elsewhere to get to play. Key players like Arnie therefore would not be able to move clubs in the January window if they had played more than the set amount of games or have missed games through injury.

  3. I’d vote for that 32.
