Valencia confident signing Maxi Gomez ahead of West Ham

Valencia are confident signing Celta Vigo striker Maxi Gomez.

Los Che and West Ham have both lodged offers for the Uruguay international.

Marca says Celta Vigo prefer a deal with Valencia, hoping to include Santi Mina in the operation, rather than with West Ham.

Valencia's strategy was always to try to seal a deal before Copa America as there was the risk of Gomez's price tag soaring, though the objective was achieved even before June 16, when the tournament kicked off.

With similar economic offers on the table for the forward from both Valencia and West Ham, the final decision is down to the player who is yet to make up his mind.
