Spurs eye Andre Gomes as they park Ross Barkley bid

Tottenham Hotspur are holding talks with Barcelona over the prospect of landing Portuguese midfielder Andre Gomes.

Spurs have parked their long-term interest in Ross Barkley until the New Year, partly due to his hamstring injury but mainly due to Everton’s reluctance to drop their £35million asking price. Chelsea and Arsenal have also shown interest in Barkley – but Spurs are confident he will now stay put.

As such Tottenham have looked elsewhere for attacking midfield and Gomes has emerged as a genuine target.

I understand Manchester United and West Ham United have also both enquired about the 24-year-old, who has also attracted interest from Italy and France.

But Spurs are now making strides and believe they could be the ideal option for the Portugal star – who has been made available by Barcelona.

Bookmakers make Tottenham favourites to land him and he is 1/2 with BetVictor.

Their Head of antepost Football Michael Triffitt told us: “Tottenham and West Ham would appear set for a deadline day tug of war over Barcelona Star Andre Gomes.

“Spurs are favourites at 1/2 with the Hammers 12/1 and its 16/1 bar the London rivals.

“The Portuguese international midfielder has not really convinced the Barcelona fans and with the jury out a move would perhaps suit all concerned. We await with interest how final day negotiations unfold.”
