From Spain: West Ham 'stop' Maxi Gomez to Valencia - Hammers 'paralyse' transfer

From Spain: West Ham 'stop' Maxi Gomez to Valencia - Hammers 'paralyse' transfer

Manuel Pellegrini is a firm fan of Celta Vigo attacker Gomez and, according to Sky Italia, West Ham are trying to deliver for the Chilean boss.

Celta have confirmed the signing of Gabriel Fernandez from Penarol, with the Uruguayan agreeing to a five-year deal.

The east London club will now go back in for Rondon once more, according to the Daily Mirror.

The 30-year-old was the only player in the West Ham side to get into double digits - scoring 10 goals in the Premier League.

And Leicester have snapped up Ayoze Perez for a rumoured £30m.

Earthquake Shakes Southland on Fourth of July
First estimated at 6.6 magnitude, the quake has been downgraded to a 6.4, recorded near the city of Ridgecrest, near Los Angeles. The temblor, which was felt as far as Los Angeles, was quickly followed by several smaller aftershocks in the area.


Trevor Sinclair has suggested on Twitter that West Ham United should sell Marko Arnautovic in the summer transfer window and replace him with West Bromwich Albion striker Salomon Rondon.

Since making the move to West Ham from Stoke City in the summer of 2017, "Arnie" has built up something of a love-hate relationship with the Hammers' faithful. Arnautovic ended up signing a new deal, saying that he wanted "to put a stop" to the speculation over his future.

West Ham rejected a bid in the region of £19m for Arnautovic on Tuesday, deeming that figure insulting, and initially hoped to take a hard line with a player who has scored 11 goals in each of his two seasons at the club.

"I sent that text 20 minutes ago and this is the reply I got just now". The question was derived from Gonzo on a Hammers Chat video; should we be selling our striker (Arnie) who doesn't want to play for us and then buying one who doesn't want to play for us either?

Arnautovic's fee is rumoured to be £25m.
