West Ham United and Valencia have both had bids accepted by Celta Vigo for the transfer of Maxi Gomez, according to Sky Sports.
The Hammers have been trying to sign the forward for a while now and they came very close to bringing him to the London Stadium in January this year, but Celta eventually opted to keep Gomez for themselves, deeming him needed in their bid to stay in La Liga past this season. However, now that they’ve succeeded in their battle against relegation, the Spanish side are willing to let him go for the right amount. The bid accepted is understood to be of £29 million.
It will now be up to the player himself to decide on where he wants to continue his career.
Valencia have not only won the Copa Del Rey, but they also finished fourth in La Liga and will be playing in the Champions League next season, which is a lot more than West Ham have to offer the 22-year-old Uruguayan, meaning that the Premier League club will likely have to offer more in terms of wages if they intend to have him seriously consider a move to London.
