New reports that West Ham are refusing to rule out a move for Maxi Gomez are arising this morning.
Media sources have picked up on comments from ITK ExWHUemployee who claims that the Celta Vigo striker remains an option for the club.
The fact remains, sadly, that at £42 million it looks unlikely given the summer budget but Ex says there remains interest in the player.
He said: ““Until he joins someone else he is still an option but he does appear to be weighing up his options.”
However these appear to becoming limited with Barcelona reportedly having pulled out of the race after seeing a £20 million bid rejected according to Diario Sport quoting Radio Galega .
The striker’s position has been closely watched also by Spurs and we would have been interested at around the £22 million had the La Liga outfit been relegated.
It seems that all interested clubs have him priced at about the same £20 million…ish and should the Hammers go to say between £25m – £30m a deal could possibly be on.
