A number of Everton fans have laughed off suggestions that West Ham United have made an offer for Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes.
Indeed, according to The Times, West Ham have made a £18m bid for the Portugal international, who spent the 2018-19 campaign on loan at Everton, impressing for Marco Silva’s outfit.
The Irons are crying for a midfield partner for the extremely impressive Declan Rice, who was mostly partnered by an ageing Mark Noble or an out-of-form Pedro Obiang this term.
The same report has reiterated that the Toffees want to sign the 25-year-old on a permanent deal, suggesting that a battle is about to take place.
However, the Goodison faithful are not worried by reports of West Ham’s interest.
Indeed, a number have taken to social media to hint that the Hammers have absolutely no chance of landing the Barcelona ace.
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…
The capital outfit seem some way off agreeing a deal with the Spanish champions anyway as they are reportedly £18m short of his transfer valuation.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the Everton fans can be seen below:
