HYS: Should West Ham United renew pursuit of Maxi Gomez?

West Ham United do not have one of the biggest spending budgets in the Premier League, but they proved in the summer that they will recruit new talent if needed.

The January window can be a tough one to navigate through in terms of bringing in quality players, but the Hammers should be in the market.

At the moment, Marko Arnautovic is Manuel Pellegrini’s first-choice option to lead the line, but when the Austrian is unavailable, the remaining options are not as effective.

In July, Radio Galega reported that West Ham had launched a £27m bid for Celta Vigo striker Maxi Gomez, but they were unsuccessful in their attempts.

There has been no speculation that the club will revive their interest, but should they?

Gomez has been in decent form this season so far, scoring seven goals and creating four assists in 11 outings for Celta.

The attacker’s contract does not expire until 2022, therefore a significant figure could be demanded, but should West Ham try again?
