West Ham will have to wait until after the Olympic Games if we want to sign South American midfielder Diego Gomez.

The Hammers have reportedly identified the Paraguayan midfielder as a promising addition this summer and have held informal talks about signing him with both Inter Miami and his agents.

Gomez has played 25 games for Inter Miami, scoring 4 goals and providing 3 assists. However, he is currently sidelined with an ankle injury that has kept him out for the last six matches.

It’s difficult to know how much truth there are to the Gomez rumours, particularly give that many of the reports of Tim Steidten being in Miami are inaccurate. However, recent reports suggest that West Ham have been instructed to hold fire on their pursuit of the player.

According to Spanish daily AS, Gomez’s future will only be decided after the Olympic Games.

Gomez, 20, will be heading to the Olympics as part of the Paraguay team, which has been placed in Group D alongside Japan, Mali, and Israel.

West Ham are not the only English club interested in Gomez, as several others have reportedly inquired about signing him.

Gomez is expected to cost interested clubs a fee between €15 million and €20 million.
