West Ham have been heavily linked with a move for Gomez throughout the summer and have agreed a fee with Celta Vigo for the forward.
However, the deal hit a snag earlier this week as West Ham were unable to work out a payment structure with Celta to pay the agreed fee.
Gomez scored 13 goals in La Liga for Celta last season and has attracted interest from a number of clubs, with West Ham and Valencia leading the race to sign him.
West Ham are looking for a new striker after Marko Arnautovic completed his controversial move to China, having handed in a transfer request at the club.
