Tottenham Hotspur are closing in on the signing of Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes, according to reports in Spain.
Gomes has impressed during his season-long loan at Everton and is said to be a long-term target of Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino.
Spanish outlet Sport claims Tottenham have already agreed personal terms with the Portugal international’s representatives ahead of a summer transfer.
It is believed Spurs will send an offer of around €30 million (approx. £26m) in the coming days in a bid to steal a march on other clubs who may be interested.
Everton have the option to purchase Gomes, but Sport reports the 25-year-old is keen to join Tottenham instead.
The Londoners are apparently waiting until their Champions League qualification is confirmed before getting in touch with Barcelona.
However, Everton boss Marco Silva has suggested Gomes is yet to make a decision about who he will play for next season.
“He didn’t decide anything about his future and his agent too. This is what I can say to you,” Silva told reporters, according to Team Talk.
Tottenham face Everton in the final game of the Premier League season on Sunday afternoon, and even a defeat to the Toffees could still result in a top four finish.
