West Ham have £29m Maxi Gomez bid accepted

West Ham have £29m Maxi Gomez bid accepted West Ham United have had a £29million offer for Celta Vigo striker Maxi Gomez accepted, but face stiff competition from Valencia, according to Sky Sports. Celta Vigo have also accepted a bid of the same value, with add-ons, from their La Liga rivals, so it’s now up to the player to decide which career path he wants to take. The 22-year-old has been a long-term target for Manuel Pellegrini and advanced talks were held in January, but West Ham would have had to pay his £43.3m release clause. Now at a cut-price, Gomez presents a good value signing which could potentially take the Hammers to the next level in their quest for European qualification.

The Morocco international is said to be keen on a move to Vigo this summer, after making 35 league appearances during his loan spell last season, and the report suggests the fee could drop to €8million.

Boufal has struggled to make an impact at Saints following his then club record £16million move from LOSC Lille in 2016, scoring just four goals and assisting three in 66 appearances in all competitions.
