West Ham show no signs of ending their vast summer spending spree, with a new forward on Manuel Pellegrini’s agenda.
The Hammers are short of options up front following the latest injury setback sustained by Andy Carroll, while Jordan Hugill looks set for a departure and Javier Hernandez struggled for form last term.
That has led Pellegrini’s side to be linked with a host of players across the continent and the latest touted for a move to the London Stadium is Celta Vigo’s Maxi Gomez.
Spanish journalist Victor Lopez has stated that the Hammers have submitted a €30m offer for the 21-year-old, although Celta could demand an additional €10m for the Uruguay international, who featured for his nation in the World Cup in Russia.
Lopez shone in his debut campaign in LaLiga last season, netting 17 goals and contributing a further four assists – finishing the season seventh in the league’s chart of top-scorers.
