West Ham fans are clearly eager to see Maxi Gomez swap Celta Vigo for the London club this summer, with many supporters flooding the replies to one of the forward’s Twitter posts. Ahead of Uruguay’s Copa America game against Ecuador, West Ham’s reported transfer target posted images of himself training for the match, which was eventually won 4-0 by his nation. The Irons have been linked with Gomez ever since January when they tried to sign him when Marko Arnautovic appeared to be on his way to China. Since the season has ended, West Ham have revived their hunt to sign the Uruguay international with Sky Sports reporting that they have tabled a bid worth ¬£29million for the striker. Gomez would be a decent addition at the London Stadium and it is not hard to see why so many fans are urging him to head to the Premier League this summer. If he looks at his mentions on Twitter, he will see just how desperate the supporters are to have him in East London and that could have a sway on his decision.
