Tottenham are currently 5th in the Premier League table, three points behind Liverpool, who occupy the final Champions League qualification spot.
The North Londoners must reinforce their squad in the winter transfer window to challenge the top four teams in the second half of the campaign.
If reports in the media are anything to go by then Spurs are once again interested in signing Barcelona star Andre Gomes.
According to Express, Spurs were close to signing the Portuguese international in the summer transfer window and now Pochettino is ready to revive interest in him after losing out on Barkley, who opted to sign for Chelsea.
The Catalan giants have got an overcrowded midfield department with players like Rakitic, Busquets, Iniesta, Rafinha, Suarez, Paulinho and new signing Coutinho around. In such a scenario, Gomes will find it hard to find a starting place in the team and it must be remembered that he is already a bench warmer.
So far, in the current campaign, the Euro 2016 champion has only started 6 games in all competitions for the La Liga leaders. His current contract with Barca (expires in 2021) has got a mammoth release clause of €100m (FCB).
Andre has the ability to play anywhere in the midfield and Spurs can provide him the much needed game time to earn place in the Seleccao team for the World Cup.
As per the provided Express link, the likes of West Ham and Man United have been linked with Gomes but the player does not fancy playing for the Hammers who are fighting relegation and the Red Devils have dropped their interest leaving the way clear for Spurs to secure his signing.
