Tottenham Hotspur Wants To Bring This Barcelona Midfielder To North London: Wise Move For Spurs?

According to a recent report by the Express, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in securing the signature of Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes at the end of this campaign. The same source has revealed that Spurs has identified the Portuguese international as an ideal replacement for Victor Wanyama, who is expected to leave the club this summer.

Gomes’ Impressive Loan Spell At Merseyside 

Gomes has enjoyed a fantastic loan spell at Everton under Marco Silva’s tutelage after putting in some dazzling displays at Goodison Park during the recently concluded Premier League season. The 25-year-old has featured in 29 matches for the Toffees this term, scoring one goal while grabbing two assists across all competitions.

The Portuguese talent has previously played for clubs such as Dragon Force, FC Porto, Boavista, Benfica and Valencia before penning a deal at the Nou Camp in the summer of 2016. He is vastly experienced in European football, which is probably one of the reasons why he has made such a smooth transition to life in the Premier League.

Gomes has also earned 25 international caps for Portugal but is yet to find the back of the net for his nation so far.

What Will The Portuguese Midfielder Add To Pochettino’s Team?

The 25-year-old has a wide passing range and hardly loses possession of the ball at the centre of the park. He has the composure to perform well in high-pressure situations which enable him to make some decisive plays from midfield.

There is no doubt that Mauricio Pochettino’s side would greatly benefit from acquiring his services this summer as he is currently playing some of the best football of his career. However, Gomes needs to add more goals and assists to his game if he wants to succeed at the new White Hart Lane.

Gomes’ Addition: Wise Move For The North London Giants?

The former Boavista midfield ace will increase competition for the likes of Moussa Sissoko, Eric Dier and Harry Winks for a midfield berth in Pochettino’s first-team. Hence, securing Gomes’ signature ahead of the new season could be a shrewd move for Spurs as they look to build a strong squad capable of challenging on all fronts next term.
