Loads of West Ham fans have been reacting to a big update on a possible striker signing, as reports claim they will not move for Maxi Gomez this month.
According to The Evening Standard, West Ham’s £43.5m swoop for Gomez will definitely not happen on deadline day.
The report claims Celta Vigo will not release the striker this month because they are in a relegation battle.
The Spanish outfit currently sit 18th in La Liga, two points adrift of safety, and Gomez is pretty much their only source of goals.

This is bad news for the Hammers though, who have gone off the boil in recent weeks after a terrific run of form before Christmas, and desperately need a clinical goalscorer.
Manuel Pellegrini’s side could be without Marko Arnautovic for at least a couple of weeks after the striker injured his foot during the defeat at Wolves, and there are still question marks over how committed the Austrian international will be even once he is fit.
You can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below, where fans are fuming at this transfer update…
Pathetic. We aren’t getting him in the summer, no chance in hell.

100% no chance. Barca will have him by then

He’ll sign for someone else then in the summer

He will 100% get snapped up by another club before then. Superb

He’ll join Barcelona in the summer. Almost guaranteed. We had to sign him this window, even to loan back. Huge opportunity, unsurprisingly, missed here again.

Fiver says Everton end up signing him ?

MASSIVE mistake. Loads will be in for him after the Copa America and he’ll cost loads more.

Typical West Ham & then we loose him. We need young players with quality & Gomez has that & will only get better. @davidgold let’s get him now COYI!!!
