According to a recent report from Sport, Everton are close to completing a deal that would see them sign Andre Gomes on a permanent basis. Barcelona are hoping to receive a figure that will be around £27 million, but there has yet to be that kind of figure agreed on by both parties. Gomes really impressed at Goodison Park during his recent loan spell there, whereas Barca don’t seem to have the room to accommodate him. A series of other top Premier League sides, including the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United, are said to have expressed their interest in him, but they weren’t able to get a deal done. Everton already have, clearly, a strong relationship with the Spanish giants, to the point where they’re confident in their ability to complete this deal.

Either way, it seems like Gomes is going to be playing his football away from the Nou Camp once again next season.
