Spurs drop interest in Portuguese star

Spurs have decided not to pursue a move for André Gomes, who spent last season on loan with Everton.

Tottenham had been monitoring Gomes’ situation, but Maurico Pochettino and his transfer team have decided to turn their attention elsewhere, leaving Everton and West Ham United a clear field to compete for him.

West Ham have already tried to inch ahead of their rivals by launching an £18 million  bid for Gomes earlier this week, but that has been turned down by his parent club Barcelona, who are believed to want closer to £30 million for his services.

Now Everton are expected to make their own offer for the player, who made 29 appearances in total for them last season, scoring once in a home defeat to Wolves in February.

The Portuguese international who joined Barcelona from Valencia in 2016 has currently two years left on his contract with the Catalan club.
