Gomez has also been capped nine times by Uruguay and is regarded as a very promising young centre-forward.

The report claims that Celta want Gomez back on loan until the end of the season, as they look to avoid relegation from La Liga.

West Ham had been concerned over the future of striker Marko Arnautovic earlier this month, only for the forward to pen a new contract over the weekend to put to bed any rumours surrounding his commitment to the club.
