Tottenham are considering a £30 million move for Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes, according to Telegraph, and the deal has Daniel Levy’s blessing.
Gomes is currently on a season-long loan at Everton, who reportedly beat Spurs to his signature last summer.
Everton now want to make Gomes’ stay permanent, but the Telegraph claims Tottenham are set to steal the Spaniard from under the Toffees’ noses.
The report suggests Spurs chairman Levy has thrown his support behind a £30 million move for Gomes, who looks like he might have a big decision to make in the coming months.
The 25-year-old has apparently been watched closely by Tottenham scouts and is seen as a potential replacement for Mousa Dembele – the Belgian left the club for the Chinese Super League in January.
Spurs are bound to bring in new arrivals this summer, particularly if a report claiming up to 12 first-team players could be sold is to be believed.
At £30 million, Gomes would provide a relatively cheap option to add depth to Tottenham’s midfield.
Whether Spurs will be able to offer him bigger wages than Everton remains to be seen, but the potential lure of Champions League football could be a selling point.
