Arsenal are said to be interested in signing Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes according to The Independent.
The 24-year-old Portugal international was part of Benfica’s famous youth academy before he sealed a move to Valencia back in 2015.
His impressive performances earned him a transfer to Barcelona a year later but he understandably struggled to break into the first team.
He has gone on to make 46 appearances for the Spanish giants, with half of them coming from the bench, but he has only managed to score three goals and make one assist.
According to the report, Barcelona would want £30million for the player who is valued at £13.5million on Tranfermarkt.
If Arsenal were successful in landing their target, Gomes would be their fourth signing of the summer after Stefan Lichsteiner, Bernd Leno and Sokratis Papastathopoulos joined new manager Unai Emery at the Emirates.

The only way this can be true is if we’re selling Ramsey

very good player but barca style did not suit him well..would take him but 40 million is too much 25-30m would be good

He is a definite upgrade on wilshere. Superb passer . If him and torreira both sign then I see ramsey playing further forward

Inflated garbage. He’s worth 12-15 mil tops. Not a starter.

Many players find it difficult at Barca. Don’t make you a bad player. Clearly has talent
