West Ham United

La Liga duo tipped to make Hammers switch

16th June 2019, 03:27 by Michael Holland

West Ham are hoping to wrap up a double deal for Celta Vigo striker Maxi Gomez and Eibar defensive midfielder Joan Jordan.

The Hammers are reported to have had a £29million bid for Gomez accepted, while they are also trying to sign Jordan after stepping up their interest in him.

Hammers boss Manuel Pellegrini has already splashed out £25m for Villarreal midfielder Pablo Fornals and brought in Espanyol goalkeeper Roberto on a free transfer.

The spending spree in Spain will not stop there though, with Sky Sports News reporting that the club have had a £29m bid for Uruguayan striker Gomez accepted by Celta Vigo, although West Ham face competition for his signature.

Valencia have had the same bid also accepted and it is now a case of talks with the player and his agent to see where he will choose to play his football next season.

The 22-year-old almost joined West Ham in January but for the two clubs to fail to agree on a fee, so the Hammers may well have their noses in front.

Pellegrini is also looking to bolster his squad with Jordan after tabling a £13m offer to Eibar to land their man.
