According to Sky Sports News, West Ham United are facing serious competition from Valencia for Celta Vigo striker Maxi Gomez.
The report has claimed that Valencia have actually agreed a deal with Celta. However, Gomez favours a switch to the Premier League.
And now ExWHUemployee has reported that the Hammers have actually offered the Uruguay international double the wages that Valencia have put on the table.
It will seemingly be up to the centre-forward to decide whether he wants to continue his journey in Spain or instead seek a move to English football.

ExWHUemployee has claimed that West Ham have blown Valencia’s contract offer out of the water, though, and that has led to a host of social media activity.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the Hammers faithful can be seen below:
Fingers crossed however he doesn’t seem to be money driven unfortunately
