West Ham will be forced to wait to sign South American star.

As usual, West Ham are being linked with every player under the sun ahead of the Summer transfer window.

In particular, there have been lots of talks with players in Brazil but, according to Spanish Daily AS, Tim Steidten may have made a pitstop to the United States of America to start negotiations with another South American.

Diego Gomez has had a great season to the MLS season scoring 2 goals and assisting another 2 in his first 9 games. Unfortunately, an ankle injury has kept him sidelined for the last 6 matches.

The Paraguayan midfielder is subject to interest from a number of English clubs and West Ham will therefore face stiff competition for his signature. However, all interested parties will be forced to wait to decide on whether he is willing to leave Inter Miami just yet until after the Olympic games where he will be representing his nation. He may have played 3 games for the full national team, but he’s only 20-years-old and potentially winning a competition like the Olympics is a big deal for a country like Paraguay.

It’s expected that David Beckham’s side will demand between €15 and €20 million Euros for Gomez which, in today’s market, is a very small risk to take on someone who is showing massive potential. The big question is whether the Hammers are willing to potentially miss out on other targets while waiting for his decision.
