'Please just please', 'Wow' - West Ham fans react to £53.5m Maxi Gomez and Stanislav Lobotka double deal rumours

According to various reports, West Ham want to pursue a double deal for Stanislav Lobotka and Maxi Gomez. And the Celta Vigo duo would cost West Ham £53.5m for this double deal, according to The Guardian.

And this report was backed up by reliable insider EXWHUEmployee on Twitter. ‘Ex’ said: “There is truth in the double deal… negotiations set to be stepped up in next few days.”

Gomez has been a long-term West Ham target, dating back to January (The Guardian). The 22-year-old striker has scored 30 goals in the past two seasons for Celta Vigo.

With Lucas Perez gone and Javier Hernandez’s future unclear, West Ham need a new striker. Consequently, they are ready to reignite their interest in the Uruguay international.

Meanwhile, Lobotka has been scouted in the past and he is now another target. The 24-year-old plays in central midfield and his style of play draws comparisons with Luka Modric. West Ham need a new player in this position and the Slovakia international could fix this problem.

West Ham fans flocked to Twitter to discuss these rumours. And there was a mixture of excitement and apprehension. Here are some of the best tweets after this news broke.
