The Times report that the Hammers have offered £18m for Gomes as Everton wait for an indication from the player as to whether he wants to come back to Goodison Park on a permanent basis.
The Portuguese spent this past season on loan with the Blues and has made no secret of how much he enjoyed his time on Merseyside but Tottenham Hotspur are also said to be interested and they could offer Champions League football.
Sky Sports are reporting that the offer from the London Stadium has been knocked back by Barça.

Like many others on TW, it would be interesting to see what's happening behind my the scenes; hopefully, Marcel Brands is planning the deals which will be executed and transform the team next season.
We live in hope eternal.

Step away from ToffeeWeb. It'll drive you mad.

It's a pity we weren't talking about Zouma, because if it was a choice between the two, I think I'd rather have him, but wouldn't say no to Gomes either.

The longer we wait the more the door opens for others to turn the players head.
FFS Everton just get on with it.

Personally I hope we dont pay over £25m for Gomes. He had a few cracking games and genuine ball skill has been missing for so long in our central midfielders that he has looked a revelation in moments but his end product and consistency are still unproven, to me at least.

So basically we don't know where the hold up is, if there is one at all, is it Barca, is it us, or is it the player ? Or there may have been a Clause in his loan with a date attached to it, who knows? Somebody obviously does but we as fans, will be last to know!

The sad news is, folks, that our city, in terms of the desired attractions of millionaire young men, is about as attractive as Hilda Baker when compared to Raquel Welch (Google 'em, youngsters!) to a red-blooded male!

But, to answer a few other questions, we can't talk directly to players. It's agents and other clubs' representatives that talk.
So I'm looking forward to cheering on AJ and Wilder but, in the meantime, I will be getting back on with my own priorities via Agent Bond and Inspector Gadget.

But West Ham?
C'mon.. Really?.. I mean, why the fuck would the player even consider what could only be seen as a step down???

New owners, new manager... same old fucked-up business model.
Gomes must be signed up asap.

A Bit harsh on poor old Hilda I would have Raquel Welsh Now you're talking. To me the most beautiful woman EVER!! When I look at her, I'm sure I married a man.
22 Posted 28/05/2019 at 12:43:54
Imo, we will lose out on Gomes and it will be a huge mistake.
23 Posted 28/05/2019 at 13:08:03

Fair enough Raquel goes into the lead in the looks department, but after said night of passion will she do you a nice bacon, eggs and a cuppa tea next morning though?
I don't think so!
Lancashire lass Hilda suddenly surges into the lead, no contest!

Gawd almighty. Wait till Messi and Pique get a load of those two!!!
27 Posted 28/05/2019 at 22:59:42
If the Hammers have made a bid, why then have Everton not already made one?
Gomes has shown he can play a bit so surely Everton will make a decent effort to get him, especially if Gana is a goner.

Ironically, if Bobby Brown Shoes did find himself in the Nou Camp, he would no doubt be playing the same football he did at Goodison Park, but with a team capable of playing it this time.
He might actually run amuck and win all there is to win?
First of all, he has to get a grip on the arrogance of their players as displayed at Anfield: "We've got a three-goal headstart and we're Barca, so why don't you just surrender!"
Fair play to the dark side, they were having none of it.

Allardyce turned them down when they refused to let Sammy Lee be the team mascot.
Funny old game isnt it?

I think the hold up is we are searching the market for who might be available to us, trying to unload the no-marks, and waiting for Moshiri's approval to proceed.
