West Ham have suffered through their fair share of absurd transfer rumours, and Hammers’ fans have been reacting to reports that Andre Gomes is a summer target.
Gomes moved to Barcelona from Valencia in 2016, but despite the huge fee and his illustrious reputation the Portuguese midfielder has failed to make any impact in Catalonia.
It’s not surprising to see Gomes linked with moves away from the Camp Nou, but the Mirror report claiming the Hammers will compete with Tottenham to sign the 24 year-old has taken everyone by surprise.
West Ham have had their own troubles in midfield this season. Having Marko Arnautovic, Manuel Lanzini and Joao Mario gives them plenty of threat going forward, but they’re still missing a technically gifted superstar to string everything together in midfield.
Gomes hasn’t scored or assisted in 15 La Liga appearances this season, but does boast an 89.6 per cent pass success rate.
Despite his incredible form for Valencia before the big move to Barcelona, West Ham fans seem to be in complete agreement that they don’t want the Portuguese man, and some of the best Twitter reactions can be found below…

He's been pathetic at Barcelona so there probably is some truth in this 🙂
