Spurs have no need to hijack Hammers despite reports

New reports have emerged this morning that Spurs are perhaps getting more serious in a supposed pursuit of Maxi Gomez.

According to Diario AS, the north London outfit have put aside £25 million to sign him.

The reason for their interest apparently is that they need to replace Fernando Llorente whom the outlet claims will depart this summer although in reality that is far from a given despite him now being 34.

And even were it to be true, Gomez will be bearing in mind that he has the choice of West Ham where he would become a regular first teamer or replace a front man who has made just two 90 minute appearances all season.

Spurs have no problems up front anyway but plenty in midfield where they are often fielding makeshift formations. Up front Kane, Son, Lucas and Llorente himself represents a strong hand with no immediate pressure on the manager for a new striker.

The report implies anyway that Gomez would need to be part of a relegated Vigo team to join Spurs given they have apparently only covered the cost of his price should that happen.

  1. I think midfield is probably Spurs main concern.
    And with Kane then Son & Moira who can play up front no to metuon Llorente.
    Gomez would probably fancy has chances of actually playing regularly here. Tho can’t offer UCL can offer good players to tee him up & well respected attacking manager.

    His striker Partner Ispas just signed a new contact with Celta & he has been the more fruitful of the two him coming back gave them boost.

    Fan of Gomez but I think I’d rather have Mitrovic especially if Gomez will cause £40m plus.
    Also think we should look in Bundesliga at Haller be perfect.
    And linked with Kouname from Ligue 1 but much better CFs in Ligue 1 even Ligue 2 like Metz Diallo
    And LA Liga another we haven’t been linked with but would suit well rounded tall quick is Inkaki Williams only 24 class CF
