The Daily Star says Mauricio Pochettino is ready to revive his interest in Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes after missing out on Ross Barkley.
The article says we pulled out of the £15 million race to land England international Barkley and now Gomes who we came close to signing in the summer is in our sights.
The article adds that Pochettino left it too late on transfer deadline day in August to sign Gomes who has only made two starts for Barca so far this season.
It credits West Ham United as being interested in Gomes but he doesn’t fancy getting involved in a battle against relegation from the Premier League.
It goes on to say Manchester United have also taken a look at Portuguese international Gomes but have now dropped their interest leaving the way clear for Tottenham.
The article says that gives Tottenham,who are keen to strengthen their squad during this transfer windowc the edge to sign him before the end of the month.
The article goes on to say,We begin our FA Cup campaign at Wembley against AFC Wimbledon knowing that it is realistically their best chance of silverware this season and it describes how Mauricio Pochettino was forced to backtrack on his earlier comments about the historic competition.
“The problem is that I’m sometimes too honest and showing my feelings and emotions,” he said. “Maybe I need to change.You need to put my words in context. For a club like Tottenham to be consistent in the top four, fighting for the Champions League and the Premier League is so important for us.
He added:”Of course the Carabao Cup and FA Cup are important to win. The team, everyone, we want to win trophies but with the players we have today, it is so important to be consistent in the Premier and then a massive effort in the Champions League. They are such important competitions for the club.”
