According to El Desmarque, West Ham United were interested in signing Sergi Gomez from Sevilla in the summer transfer window.

It has been reported that West Ham did not make a concentre bid for the defender, who was open to moving to the Premier League.

The report has also claimed that there will be talks regarding the future of the 27-year-old central defender in the January transfer window.

 

Stats

Gomez joined Sevilla in the summer of 2018 after leaving fellow Spanish club Celta de Vigo.

The 27-year-old made 31 starts and one substitute appearance in La Liga for Sevilla last season, according to WhoScored.

The defender also made nine appearances in the Europa League for the La Liga outfit during the 2018-19 campaign, providing one assist in the process, according to WhoScored.

West Ham United move in January?

West Ham are not exactly in desperate needs of a central defender, but if the Hammers are in a position to challenge for a top-six finish in the Premier League in the middle of the season, then they could well look into strengthening their team to give them that extra push.
