West Ham United in talks to sign Diego Gomez

West Ham United are reportedly in talks to sign 21-year-old Paraguayan midfielder Diego Gomez from MLS club Inter Miami.

According to a report by Paraguayan outlet Versus, Diego Gomez is the subject of interest from West Ham United. The Hammers are discussing a possible move for the 21-year-old Inter Miami midfielder. In addition, the youngster will likely leave the MLS club to move to the Premier League in the summer transfer window.

Who is Diego Gomez?

Diego Gomez is one of the best young players in MLS. A native of San Juan Bautista, he spent his formative years in his homeland, graduating from the Libertad youth division a few years ago. However, the Paraguayan international has risen in prominence since joining Inter Miami last summer.

The 21-year-old has been a regular for Inter Miami this season, being one of the shining lights for the MLS upstart despite being in a star-studded team alongside Lionel Messi. Gomez has chipped in with three goals and three assists in 13 appearances across all competitions.

Meanwhile, the youngster’s progress has not gone unnoticed, capturing the attention of well-known clubs in Europe. The report has claimed that a move to the continent might be on the cards, with West Ham United in talks to sign him from Inter Miami in the summer transfer window.

West Ham United interested in Gomez

West Ham United’s interest in Diego Gomez is understandable. The Hammers are scouring the market for a midfielder heading into the summer transfer window amid uncertainties surrounding the future of Lucas Paqueta due to the latest updates in his betting controversy.

In addition, Tomas Soucek faces an uncertain future at the London Stadium. So, several candidates, including Arthur Melo, have emerged on West Ham United’s radar. However, Gomez is also a viable target, with the East London club discussing a possible summer move for the 21-year-old with MLS club Inter Miami.

So, Gomez’s spell with Inter Miami will likely end after just one year, having spent the last twelve months with Lionel Messi and other big-name players. It will be interesting to see if West Ham can successfully conclude negotiations by securing his services in the coming days.
