According to a recent report by Spanish news outlet Sport, Tottenham Hotspur are inching closer towards securing the services of Barcelona’s Andre Gomes, who is currently playing on loan at Everton, during the summer transfer period. The same source has revealed that Spurs have reached an agreement with the Portuguese midfielder’s representatives and are now ready to table a €30m bid to convince Barca to sell their prized asset in this offseason.
Gomes’ Impressive Track Record In European Football
Gomes has enjoyed an impressive loan spell with the Toffees after putting in some glorious displays in midfield under Marco Silva’s guidance during the second half of this campaign. The 25-year-old has featured in 28 matches for the Merseyside outfit this term, scoring one goal while providing two assists in all competitions.
The Portuguese talent has previously played for clubs such as Dragon Force, FC Porto, Boavista, Benfica and Valencia before his move to the Nou Camp in the summer of 2016. He is vastly experienced in Europe having played for so many different clubs in Portugal and Spain.
Gomes is now proving his worth in the Premier League and his incredible contributions in midfield this season have helped the Toffees secure a top half finish in the league standings. The Vila Nova de Gaia born talent has also earned 29 international caps for Portugal but is yet to find the back of the net for his country thus far.
What Will The Portuguese Sensation Bring To White Hart Lane?
Gomes boasts a terrific passing range and is an accurate distributor of the ball from midfield. He can also complete some lung-bursting dribbles in the opposition half which makes him such a useful asset for the Merseyside club at the centre of the park.
The potential addition of Gomes will undoubtedly bolster Mauricio Pochettino’s midfield options at the new White Hart Lane. He will not only improve the quality of the Spurs team but will also increase competition for places within Pochettino’s squad in the upcoming campaign.
Will Gomes Be A Good Signing For Spurs?
Hence, Gomes will be a fantastic option for the North London outfit as he has all the makings to be a creative force in Pochettino’s midfield for years to come.
