Tottenham Hotspur may not have signed anyone during the 2018 summer transfer window but a recent report suggests that Daniel Levy is already making plans for the 2019 summer window.
Whether Levy is lining up another Lucas Moura-esque type January deal remains to be seen, but with the stadium move dominating the club it seems unlikely that new players will be arriving in the winter window.
However, according to the Daily Telegraph, Spurs have been enticed by Andre Gomes’ form since joining Everton this season, and they are ready to rival the Toffees for his signature next summer.
With Mousa Dembele seemingly heading towards the Tottenham exit door, there have been plenty of rumours linking Tottenham with a move to a new central midfielder, and Gomes’ performances this season suggest he could be the perfect candidate to move to north London.
Dembele and Gomes have contrasting styles but it’s not unreasonable to suggest that the Portugal international is capable of filling the void which Dembele will inevitably leave.
Like Dembele, Gomes is a natural playmaker who keeps things ticking over in the middle of the park, and his 6’2″ frame enables him to compete physically alongside Premier League enforcers.
In response to reports, a handful of Spurs fans called for their club to complete a deal, while some fans of the Catalan giants suggested that they’d like to see a swap deal involving either Harry Kane or Christian Eriksen.
Here’s what Barcelona and Tottenham fans have had to say in response to the report…
Gomez is a very good player. Showing he’s adapting to the Prem quick. And he’d suit Poch style of play. He’d be a massive coup
