Wherever the Barcelona man ends up, he will add real drive to the team with his forward runs and amazing passing range, assets key to any Premier League side.

The Hammers have reportedly made a second bid in the region of £20 million for the 25-year-old Portuguese international, but only time will tell as to where the midfielder is playing his football next season.

With Barcelona looking to offload Gomes permanently, a loan deal isn’t really an option, bids closer to the £25 million mark may however be taken more seriously.

According to the Telegraph, the Toffees are increasingly confident of keeping the Portuguese at Goodison Park moving forward. The silky midfielder enjoyed an impressive season on loan from Barcelona, becoming a fans’ favourite in the process. Gomes has been strongly linked with a move to Tottenham this summer, but they have ended their interest in the player.
