Gomez focused on Celta amid Hammers link

11th April 2019, 10:30 by Chris Rivers

Celta Vigo striker Maxi Gomez claims he is unsure whether he will leave this summer amid continued links to West Ham.

The Hammers are understood to have maintained their interest in the 22-year-old having failed to persuade Celta to part ways with the striker during the January transfer window.

West Ham are reported to have offered £43.5million for Gomez in the new year but the deal fell apart due to Celta's insistence on him being loaned back for the remainder of the season.

With Celta's top-flight future far from assured - the Galicia outfit sit two points above the relegation zone with seven games to play - Gomez could be available at a cut-price fee due to a relegation release clause in his contract.

Celta appear to be preparing for life after Gomez having agreed to sign Uruguayan forward Gabriel Fernandez from Penarol, and all indications point towards Celta selling their star man this summer.

Gomez himself says he does not know whether he will be moving to the London Stadium at the end of the season and is focused on preserving Celta's La Liga status.

"I do not know if I'm going or if I'm staying," he told El Desmarque. "I am now in Celta and I hope it continues like this, helping the team is fundamental."

"Many things come out, I do not look at those things. As I say, I am very happy here and hopefully continue contributing and helping – that is fundamental," he added.
