A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

Tottenham Hotspur has been handed a big boost ahead of the new campaign as one of their transfer targets, Andre Gomes has revealed that he is keen on making a switch to the North London club this summer. According to recent reports, the Barcelona midfielder has set his sights on a switch to White Hart Lane as he looks to reignite his career away from the Nou Camp.

The 24-year-old has failed to live up to high expectations since his arrival at Catalonia from Valencia. Some sources are now claiming that the Barca talent is looking to seal a move to Spurs this summer and he is reportedly a big admirer of Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino’s style of playing football. However, for now, the Portuguese midfielder is part of Ernesto Valverde’s pre-season squad even though his future remains uncertain at the Spanish club.

Gomes had made 31 appearances for Barca last season and has one assist to his name in all competitions. The Portuguese sensation is in need of change as he looks to revive his career in the coming years. The Barcelona outcast is the kind of player who can thrive under the guidance of Pochettino at White Hart Lane if given the opportunity to showcase his talents in English football.

The North London giants had managed to attain a 3rd placed finish in the league last season but are in need of some quality talents in this window so that they have an able squad capable of competing on all fronts next term.

The addition of Gomes will undoubtedly bolster Pochettino’s midfield options at White Hart Lane. Spurs have the likes of Eric Dier, Christian Eriksen, Mousa Dembele and Victor Wanyama vying for a place in Pochettino’s starting XI. The potential acquisition of Gomes will definitely improve their team significantly and add more competition for places within Pochettino’s squad. The Barca ace knows what it takes to play at the highest level which is why he could turn out to be a shrewd signing for the North London club.
