West Ham are closing in on a deal to sign Celta Vigo striker Maxi Gomez, according to Sky sources.

Sky Sports News understands West Ham are prepared to meet the player's £43.2m release clause despite Marko Arnautovic ruling out a move away from the club.

Gomez has scored nine goals in 19 La Liga appearances this season for a Celta Vigo side who are sitting 17th in the La Liga standings.

Their precarious position in the league table means a deal for the 22-year-old could see him return to Celta on loan until the end of the season to help them secure survival.

Hudson-Odoi has scored two goals in all competitions this season.

Olivier Giroud is confident Gonzalo Higuain will score goals for Chelsea, but warned he may need time to adjust to the Premier League.

Olivier Giroud admits he is considering his future at Chelsea following the arrival of Gonzalo Higuain.

Giroud's contract is up in the summer and says he is thinking about a move back to France. Giroud has scored once in 18 Premier League appearances this season.

"If the club decides to get another striker, like Higuain, it will certainly darken my future at Chelsea," he told Canal in an interview released on Sunday.

"I have never said no to a return to France. Lyon and Marseille are two great clubs. My priority is to stay in the Premier League though."

Denis Suarez to Arsenal

Denis Suarez was left out of Barcelona's squad for Wednesday's Copa Del Rey clash against Sevilla and was an unused substitute against Girona on Sunday as he continues to be linked to a move to Arsenal.

Suarez, who has made just eight appearances for Barcelona this season, was believed to be close to signing a deal with Arsenal at the start of the month.

It is understood Unai Emery is keen to work with Suarez once more and the player would be happy to reunite with his former coach.

The 25-year-old played under Emery on loan at Sevilla before signing for Villarreal in August 2015.

Javier Hernandez is keen on a move to Valencia and West Ham are willing to sell him this month, according to the Spanish side's manager Marcelino.

Sky Sports pundit Andy Walker says Rangers risk damaging their chances of winning the Scottish Premiership if they decide to sell striker Alfredo Morelos

Steven Gerrard is confident Rangers can see out January without having to fend off offers for Alfredo Morelos who has been attracting interest from Ligue 1 side Nice.

The 22-year-old, who has scored 21 goals for Rangers already this season, is not set to move away from the club according to Gerrard. The Rangers boss insists nobody has come up with a sufficient bid to persuade the club to sell their striker.

He said: "I think there will be talk of Tav [James Tavernier] and talk of Alfredo but the reality is there hasn't been a solid bid for any of our players so far.

"Will one come? Possibly, I'm not sure. I'll have to answer the question when it does. There hasn't been a respectable bid for any of the players where we stand right now."
