Late in the summer transfer window, Tottenham were repeatedly linked with a move for Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes.
In fact, they very nearly signed him after making an initial loan approach that turned into a potential permanent deal on deadline day.
The move failed to materialise, but Gomes’ situation at Barcelona hasn’t changed.
According to Spanish outlet Marca (spotted by Sport Witness), Barcelona are willing to sell the 24-year-old Portugal international for €35 million (£31.25m) next summer, and Mauricio Pochettino is still keen for a deal to happen.
I’m not convinced by what I’ve seen of Gomes – perhaps he is simply an alternative to Ross Barkley, who Spurs are reportedly set to fight Chelsea for in January.
