The Portuguese has long been linked with Spurs and came close to signing for them in the summer of 2017 but remained at Barcelona and eventually signed for Everton on loan last August.
There were strong indications from Gomes himself and from sources close to Goodison Park that the midfielder was looking to stay at Everton and sign a permanent deal and that could still be the case.
This latest claim, however, has it that Gomes and his agent have agreed personal terms with Spurs and that Barça are waiting for a formal offer of €30m from the North Londoners once the latter has secured Champions League football for next season.
According to the Liverpool Echo, meanwhile, Everton have now opened negotiations with Barcelona over the transfer of Gomes to Goodison on a full-time basis.

Hopefully André will see sense and sign for us, it would be a huge hole to fill if he doesnt, especially if Gana goes too.

The red press are constantly trying to undermine us.
Anyway I'm more concerned about Zouma.

"why would Gomez sign just before the final game especially against Spurs."
Do you not remember when Dunc signed for Newcastle during a game between the two clubs? That said, either Gomez has Silva snowed or as jay points it is a BS story based on Silva's remarks today.

Giovanni Lo Celso of Real Betis is two years younger and is earning rave reviews, and would cost about the same.

If he stays, No letting Levy wind the price up, it has to be within our budget. Not a penny over £30M ( lower if we can obviously) and none of this 5yrs at £125K a week either.

Gomes has shown a great rapport at GP and at away games with the fans.
If goes to Spurs, as he wants to, then best rid, but Id be surprised if this isnt media bull, to hike the price up.
Im sue MB has his own plans, and I trust MB, to get the best players, in for the club, this preseason.
No doubt tomorrow night the rumour mills, will be on full flow.
Lets see what happens.
As many have said, the grass isnt always greener on the other side. Money helps, but health and happiness and contentment are more valuable.

With Everton he has got his career back on track and is with a club that is on the up. I expect us to be challenging for Europe and a trophy next season he should be part of that.
He would be better of staying and building on his impressive start for us. Why throw a spanner in the works and risk going back to square one.
For me though , I agree with Paul above, he is not irreplaceable . i would like to sign both Zouma and Gomes, but my priority would be the former if Chelsea win their next appeal.

Gomes? I'm trying to think how Spurs would fit him in regularly with Dier, Wanyama, Sissoko, Lemela, Alli, Erikson, Winks & Dembele.

For Barca transfer info, I suggest keeping an eye on Mundo Deportivo. Proved last summer with accurate reporting on Digne and Mina. In March they said Barca want to sell Gomes early to help fund purchases and will sell to the highest bidder. Nothing since, so that's where they are.

I hope we get him. Hes got a bit of devil in him too, which you need.

If they cant buy then Zouma will surely be back with them next season even if he warms the bench most weeks.
19 Posted 11/05/2019 at 16:21:52
Losing both Gomes and Gueye would suddenly bring us back to square one. A midfield of Davies, McCarthy and Schneiderlin does not fill me with a lot of confidence.

Gomes has been decent but not outstanding. Id prefer a box to boxer with more pace and more goals (see Lo Celso or Loftus-Cheek) but for continuitys sake the Portuguese makes sense. Hope we can get him for £20-25m. Seems like he is happy and fitted in well which is good as I imagine hell have to take a pay cut.

A Spurs fan who would rather have Digne than Rose.
