West Ham are exploring the possibility of a 60million double-swoop on Celta Vigo, says Gianluca Di Marzio.

According to the well-placed Italian journalist, West Ham - not content with continuing with their pursuit of striker Maxi Gomez - are seeking to add Slovakian striker Stanislav Lobotka to the equation.

And were the Hammers to follow through with a concrete bid for the Spanish-based duo, it would brush aside suggestions that the club only had 30million to spend this summer.

Striker Gomez has been linked with a string oif clubs since helping Vigo avoid relegation from La Liga at the end of last season and is rated around the 40million mark -whilst defensive midfielder Lobotka is valued at circa 25million.

Gomez, who was also linked with a move to newly-promoted Aston Villa last week scored 13 goals for Vigo last season and played a major role in helping the club avoid relegation.

Meanwhile Lobotka, 24 (see below), made 31 appearances in Lal Liga and one in the Copa Del Rey.
