According to Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, Tottenham will make a surprise move for Portuguese wide-man Andre Gomes in a bid to bolster the squad’s attacking talent.

In recent weeks, Manchester United have been strongly linked with the 23 year old Barca midfielder and Football.London understands that Gomes is also to be in high demand this Summer.

Gomes was a regular figure in Portugal’s Euro 2016 winning team and also scored 3 goals in 44 appearances for Barcelona last season.

Though Spurs have been interested in similar midfielders such as Thomas Lemar and Maximilian Meyer, Andre Gomes is an apparent alternative should Spurs not land their first choice targets.

In spite of interest from abroad, Mundo Deportivo also claims that Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde does not want to sell the winger, but additionally, Gomes himself does not intend to leave the Nou Camp this Summer.

What do you make of this transfer news? Is Gomes someone we should sign? Or should we pursue other targets?
