Clearly, Tottenham need to find a replacement for Mousa Dembele and they might just have found that man in Andre Gomes. If he signs, they’ll be sure to step up their title challenge next season.
The Everton midfielder has been a shining light in a hit-and-miss season for the Toffees since arriving on loan from Barcelona. They’re now proving they’re very capable of beating the top six sides, and Gomes has certainly influenced their ability to go toe-to-toe with the big boys.
Spurs need a Dembele replacement and the likes of Eric Dier and Harry Winks just aren’t the same class as Gomes, who is just 25-years-old. He could fill the gap in midfield quality and stop Spurs from being so open to counter attacks.
He’s a well-rounded central midfielder that has all the qualities to break up play but then start the team’s attacks too. He’s got great vision and that’s exactly what Pochettino will be searching for as they look to turn defence into attack as quickly as possible.
The Portuguese will return to Spain in the summer, but Football Insider believe there are fears on Merseyside that Spurs will blow Everton out of the water and bring him to London rather than back to Merseyside. It’d be a step up that Gomes would surely welcome as he looks to establish himself as one of Europe’s best.
He’s now rated at £25.2m on Transfermarkt and that’d be a bargain if Daniel Levy can secure his signature. His 26 games for Everton should have been enough to convince him the ex-Valencia man is worth way more than that.
