TalkSPORT pundit: West Ham have 'hedged their bets' on signing 'man mountain' this summer



West Ham have “hedged their bets” onsigning Celta Vigostriker Maxi Gomez this summer, according to talkSPORT pundit David Connolly.
The 22-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to the Hammers in recent times, as reported by Sky, but appears to be on his way to Valencia instead.

Speaking on talkSPORT, he said: “He is a terrific talent. He?s a man mountain, he can basically do a little bit of everything.
“But it looks like they?ve hedged their bets on him thinking ?right, we?re going to get him?, but obviously he?s gone for Valencia.”

Just 0.4 dribbles and 0.9 key passes per match [Whoscored] show a playerwho still has things tolearn if he is to become an allroundperformer, and may...
