Everton have defied expectations in the current campaign under Marco Silva as they continue to chase down a European place.
The Toffees will feel confident that they can secure all three points against Watford on Monday night, with the opportunity to cement their place in the top-six.
However, Marco Silva suffered a huge setback on the transfer front recently, as according to The Wistle, Liverpool are considering a move for Andre Gomes and Arsenal are also interested.
Everton secured one of the signings of the summer transfer window by bringing Andre Gomes in on loan, as he has gone on to establish himself as one of the best midfielders in the Premier League.
Marco Silva and Marcel Brands are keen on securing the Portuguese international on a permanent deal, but it appears as if they’ll face great difficulties.
Sadly, Arsenal are believed to be in the race for the 25-year-old, but they seem to be losing out at this moment in time as Liverpool are already considering a bid for the midfielder.
It’s understood that Andre Gomes is considering a move away from Goodison Park as he seeks a bigger challenge with a top club in the Premier League.
Everton will find it very difficult to pip Liverpool and Arsenal to the midfielder’s signature.
He is thought to be interested in a move to a top English club that can provide a big challenge, which gives Arsenal and Liverpool the upper-hand.
So, it looks as if the Toffees will have to accept defeat if Liverpool make an official bid.
