Everton fans on Twitter are split over whether or not the club should turn Andre Gomes’ loan move into a permanent deal.
The Portuguese international arrived at Goodison Park on loan from Barcelona back in the summer, and has impressed with his composure on the ball and his passing ability in the blue of Everton.
In this era of ‘big 6’ dominance, has finishing 7th become as good as winning a trophy? The Pl>ymaker FC squad have their say in the video below…
One would assume that most Toffees supporters would want to see the 25-year-old sign on a permanent basis, but one factor that has been influencing their thoughts is the huge reported fee that the Spanish champions want for Gomes.
Marca have revealed that Barcelona could ask for more than €40m for the former Valencia man, a figure that would be a hefty one for Marco Silva’s side to splash on just one player.
However, given the uncertainty over Idrissa Gueye’s future, perhaps a permanent deal for Gomes could be seen as a necessary capture come the summer.
Let’s see what the Everton fanbase, who appear to be torn over the matter, are saying on Twitter…
Get him signed he’s class build the midfield around him

The way he’s been playing since November, I’d be swerving it as it stands at present. If he regains form between now and end of season then yes we should be all over it. He has to prove himself again, it’s all down to him now.

Get him in 100%

Depends on the cost – he has shown that he can be a brilliant player, but not in our current system so much. If we could get him for £20m then maybe yeah, as we would have money to bring in someone alongside to help him. If they still want £40m, maybe not.

All day. Absolutely amazed at some prople turning their nose up at him.

Only at the right price. Anything significantly over £20M and I start to doubt

Anything over 30 mill I’d say no hasn’t done enough for me
— Joshua Jones (@jonesjosh1988) March 15, 2019
Should be our number one priority making his deal permanent, class player and with having this season to adapt and a full pre season, he’ll be even better.
