Reports in Spain are claiming Arsenal are interested in signing Andre Gomes from Barcelona.
Wenger is reportedly in the market for a new centre midfielder and it’s now being claimed Arsenal have tabled an ‘interesting offer’ to sign Gomes.
Gomes is a product of Benfica’s academy and impressed in Portugal with his boyhood club and Spain with Valencia before completing a £44m move to the Camp Nou last summer.
However, he has failed to live up to expectations and with Barcelona chasing the signature of Marco Verratti, his future could be under threat.
According to the Daily Cannon, Arsenal are looking to sign the midfielder and may be willing to submit a £30m bid in order to beat the likes of Juventus, Manchester United and Tottenham to his signature.
Despite the 23 year old’s mixed debut season at the Camp Nou, he is still regarded as one of Europe’s most promising midfielders but links with Arsenal doesn’t make so much sense at the moment as we currently have enough numbers in that position, assuming all our players can stay fit.
However, injury remains an issue as we have suffered midfield crisis in the last couple of seasons.
Still, a move for Gomes doesn’t look feasible at the moment especially as they haven’t been able to sign Verratti just yet. Not to forget we recently frustrated the Spaniard’s in their attempt to sign Bellerin, so they may not be open to doing business with us.
We’ll have to wait to see if this will develop into something serious later in the transfer window, but I doubt.
