West Ham United will still believe that they can secure a European spot in the current campaign, but this will all depend on whether they bring in reinforcements before the transfer window shuts.
The Irons have certainly improved under the guidance of Manuel Pellegrini this season, but there’s still a long way to go if they want to meet their aims.
Marko Arnautovic ruled out a move away recently, but it still looks as if the Hammers are going to splash the cash, as according to Sky Sports, West Ham are closing in on a deal to sign Celta Vigo’s Maxi Gomez.
It’s believed that West Ham are closing in on a deal to sign Celta Vigo striker Maxi Gomez.
And, talks are ongoing over a deal which could see him loaned back until the end of the season given Celta’s worrying position in the La Liga.
Much to the delight of supporters, West Ham want to go forward with the transfer despite Arnautovic ruling out a move away from the London Stadium.
So, the London club are one course to secure the 9-cap Uruguayan international, with talks ongoing.
Maxi Gomez has plenty of potential and he has already shown that he can score goals and provide assists over in Spain, so he could be a valuable addition at the pinnacle of the attack if the Irons secure a deal.
Marko Arnautovic has had to lead the line for the Hammers this season, with Javier Hernandez chipping in occasionally, so it comes as no surprise that they’re looking to bring in the attacker.
