West Ham have £29 million Maxi Gomez bid accepted – Sky

As per a report from Sky, both West Ham United and Valencia have had big-money offers for Maxi Gomez accepted by Celta Vigo.

Celta standout

Gomez, a 22-year-old Uruguayan international, made the move to Europe from his home country in the summer of 2017, when Celta clinched the signing of the powerful hitman from Defensor Sporting.

And Gomez has since taken to the rigours of European football like a duck to water.

Across 70 La Liga appearances to this point, the youngster has notched an impressive 30 goals and 9 assists. This included a debut campaign haul of 17 league goals at the age of just 21.

Premier League bound?

As such, Gomez’s stellar form at the Balaídos has unsurprisingly not gone unnoticed across Europe.

West Ham United were heavily-linked with a move for the South American during the winter transfer window:

Recent reports, meanwhile, have suggested that the Hammers have firmly reignited their pursuit of Gomez this summer.

And, as per the aforementioned update from Sky Sports this afternoon, the capital outfit have had a £29 million (plus bonuses) offer accepted by Celta Vigo.

Crucially, however, Celta’s La Liga rivals Valencia are said to have a similar bid accepted.

As such, the decision on Gomez’s next club now lies with the player himself.
