Loads of Everton fans have been reacting to the links to Andre Gomes, and this is one deal that they all want to happen.
It’s been a bit of a weird window for Everton. Marcel Brands and Marco Silva had a lot of work to do trimming the wage bill and oversized squad, and they’ve left it very late to wrap up deals.
Despite their slow start though, the Toffees are on the brink of a very successful window.
If they can add Bernard and a centre back to the captures of Lucas Digne and Richarlison it would have be to considered a fantastic summer, and it looks like they could beat several Premier league rivals to Barcelona’s Gomes as well.
According to Dominic King, Gomes is “desperate” to join the Toffees, as the clubs are nearing an agreement on a loan deal.
The 25 year-old Portuguese international is expected to leave the Catalan club after his move from Valencia didn’t go to plan.
Still, he is a wonderfully technically gifted player with the size and strength to cope in the Premier League as well. He also has title winning experience, which will certainly help some of the younger Toffees.
