Deal Close – €100m Star to Move to Spurs – He Was Offered to Liverpool

Tottenham Hotspur completed the signing of Ivorian star Serge Aurier earlier in the day from PSG and the latest reports suggest that they may get another quality star before the deadline ends tonight.

According to reports going on in the media, Spurs are close to signing Portuguese international and Barcelona star Andre Gomes.

The Spanish international joined the Catalan giants last season but mainly warmed the bench in the presence of star midfielders like Iniesta, Rakitic and Busquets.

Not so long ago, he was offered to Liverpool (via Diario Gol) in an effort to lure Coutinho but the Reds were not interested and the Brazilian is still with the Merseysiders.

According to Mirror, Tottenham are set to sign the former Valencia midfielder, who was a key member of the Seleccao’s Euro 2016 winning side.

The British source have claimed that Spurs have beaten off competition from the Hammers and the player will initially arrive on loan.

As per Daily Mail, the 24-year-old star is nearing a move to Spurs. His current deal with Barcelona has got a mammoth release clause of €100m (FCB). However, according to the information gathered by the Mail, Spurs will be obligated to sign Andre for 40 million pounds if he plays 60% of the games this season.

At the moment, Dembele and Wanyama are the main starters in Pochettino’s midfield. In your opinion, is Gomes good enough to get straight into the starting XI?

    Dembele struggles to achieve the full 90 minutes anyway, so it may not a bad thing.

  2. Yes but where does Winks / Dier. Fit in

  3. Pete Deas says:

    We have a lot of games to get through and players need resting now and again. So makes complete sense to me this signing.
