According to reports from the Mail Online, Tottenham are monitoring West Ham target and Celta Vigo striker Maxi Gomez.

Gomez is said to be seen as ideal cover for Harry Kane and Fernando Llorente, with the Dutch striker Vincent Janssen expected to leave in the summer.

Spurs might be in need of a cover for the England captain with his recent ankle injury highlighting the north-Londoners lack of attacking options.

Gomez sparked further speculation last week when he refused to rule out a summer transfer.

The player’s release clause has been set at £43.5 million by Vigo, however the striker could go for less if the right offer comes in.

West Ham United are keen to sign the 22-year old, but the Uruguayan wants to play for a club in European competition and West Ham cannot provide that.

However, despite the possibility of playing European football at Spurs, it is unclear whether the footballer would be happy with being a second-choice striker behind Kane.

The Hammers will be desperate this summer as they expect to lose Javier Hernandez, Marko Arnautovic, Lucas Perez and Andy Carroll.

Vigo’s striker joined the Spanish club in 2017 and has featured in 63 games since then, scoring 28 goals.

This season alone, Gomez has notched 11 goals and five assists from 29 appearances.

He has also played 11 games for his national football team and scored once.
