As reported by The Mirror, West Ham are interested in signing Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes this summer.
With the Hammers fans having to endure another difficult season, manager David Moyes is expected to make significant changes to the first team squad at the London Stadium if he stays on as manager.
One player that could be on his way is Barcelona man Andre Gomes.
That’s according to The Mirror, who say the player is open to a move to the Premier League but that West Ham face competition from London rivals Tottenham Hotspur for his signature.
Rated at £13.5m by Transfermarkt, can the Irons convince him his future is with them?
Andre Gomes is a player on the fringes of the Barcelona first team this season, although is apparently a valued member of the squad, getting plenty of action from the bench with 30 appearances in total.
With close to 200 appearances between spells at Barca, Valencia and Benfica, it’s clear he is a player of quality that would likely add class and composure to the middle of the park at the London Stadium.
It’s the kind of elite experience that doesn’t usually find its way to the West Ham United first team.
As you’d expect from a Barcelona player he has excellent technical passing ability and a football intelligence that could add a new dimension to their midfield play.
If he’s available this summer then he’s someone the Hammers should be pursuing.
