The Maxi Gomez and West Ham United link seemingly isn’t going away.
We will try again I believe https://t.co/a5Om0EhOY4

The Celta Vigo striker has been continuously linked with a move to the London Stadium this summer, with the latest update from Sky Sports News stating that the 22-year-old is keen on a move to the Premier League, and this seems to back up an early claim from West Ham ITK ExWHUemployee, who recently said that the club would go back in for Gomez this month.
The Uruguayan has been the subject of interest from Manuel Pellegrini’s side as far back as January, where the Guardian reported that West Ham were ready to pay Gomez’s reported £43.5 million release clause, so it clearly has been a saga that’s run on and on.
Indeed, having 15 goals last season (higher than anyone in the West Ham side), it’s not hard to see why.
Of course, news got around the West Ham fan base fast and reaction was rife on social media, particularly Twitter.
So, here’s how some supporters reacted to the news of the club’s interest in Gomez…
Get Maxi a Taxi

Just pay what they want or offer arnie in part ex

If arnie wants to go and Gomez wants to start, this could work out rather well!

Let’s get him and put Arnie in the cold. He costs the team far more in negativity, morale and poor performances than we could hope to recoup on transfer fees

Any chance they want a moody Austrian looking for a payday as part of the deal

Time to stop messing around and make an offer that gets the player especially in light of the Arnautovic situation

Sell Arnie can promise gomez first team football, bring in rondon and then the money we got left and hernanderz money bring in another forward maybe a younger one
