The Hammers have forked out around £100 million on new signings but it seems as though Manuel Pellegrini is not done yet, with a central midfielder still on the radar.
Gomes is one possibility as the 25-year-old has struggled to see much action at the Nou Camp since his move from Valencia in 2016.
The Portugal international made only 16 La Liga appearances last term, missing out on the World Cup in Russia and reports claim he is no longer part of Ernesto Valverde's plans with the Catalans.
He has looked a shadow of his former self with the Spanish giants and it may be that a move to the London Stadium is just what he needs to reignite a career that blossomed with Los Che.
Spanish media outlet Esport 3 is reporting that Gomes has a firm offer from West Ham, with Pellegrini a big admirer of a player who is currently out of action after picking up a hamstring injury against Tottenham in pre-season.
