The Times have published a story claiming that West Ham United have made an £18m bid for Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes.
And a number of the London club’s fans are desperate for their club to complete a summer swoop for the Portugal international.
Gomes spent the 2018-19 campaign on loan at Everton but as it stands will return to Barcelona for the start of pre-season.
It would be a surprise if the midfielder remained with the Spanish champions beyond the end of this summer’s transfer deadline, though.
According to The Times, West Ham have launched a £18m offer but that is only half of what Barcelona want for the former Valencia ace.
It will certainly be interesting to see how this story unfolds, with both Premier League outfits seemingly intent on securing his services.
And a number of West Ham fans are keen for their side to bring the 6 ft 2 ace to the English capital – a selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:
If we get him that is an unreal signing

I wish this was true he is class and a player we could do with but surely there will be a lot bigger clubs after him now

Been saying for MONTHS be unreal signing BUT £18 million seems way to cheap at that price be a lot of teams offering.. I think would be more like £28 mill..
