West Ham debate £7million forward bid

West Ham are considering a £7million move for Germany international Mario Gomez, according to the Mirror.

The Hammers have been on the hunt for a striker all summer, with the Mirror claiming their attempts to sign Carlos Bacca have stalled, with the Colombian waiting on a better offer.

Milan have accepted West Ham’s £26million offer for Bacca, and have offered the striker £95,000-a-week to play at the Olympic Stadium. But the forward is yet to agree personal terms, with Hammers chiefs now considering alternative options.

Gomez was on loan at Besiktas last season, scoring 26 goals in 33 Turkish Super Lig appearances. But the forward has no intentions to return to Turkey after their countries recent military clashes, and could be available for £7million.

The 31-year-old scored twice for Germany at Euro 2016, as Germany reached the semi-finals of the competition, only to lose to France.

The Hammers kick off their new Premier League campaign on August 15th, travelling to Chelsea. But they have already been involved in competitive action, and trail Domzale 2-1 going into the 2nd leg of their UEFA Europa League qualifier on Thursday.
