Arsenal and Wolves are amongst a host of clubs tracking the progress of Valencia forward Maxi Gomez.
The Spanish club are desperate to raise funds because their finances have been severely depleted by the global pandemic and, although Gomez has a release clause of £125 million, they are willing to let him go for much less than that for an immediate injection of cash.
The Uruguay international only moved to Valencia from Celta Vigo last year, bit is expected to eb sold either in January or next summer.
West Ham previously bid for him but, at that stage, he preferred to remain in Spain and indicated a preference to play for a team that offered regular European football.
Gomez has cored three goals in ten appearances this season, having finished the last campaign. He has won 19 senior caps for Uruguay, so there should be no problem for any Premier League club wanting to sign him according to the post- Brexit rules.

He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
