Tottenham are close to securing a move for Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes, according to Spanish outlet Sport, and we think Levy is about to strike gold again. 

The report claims that Tottenham executives have agreed a fee of £25.9m with the representatives of Gomes, with the Barcelona player keen on a move to north London.

The meeting with Gomes’ agents took place last week and Barcelona are said to be waiting for the offer, and while Everton want to keep Gomes, Sport has claimed the Tottenham move is likely to succeed.

Many Tottenham fans weren’t exactly delighted with the news, but we think he will be a great player for Spurs.

Mauricio Pochettino and Daniel Levy obviously think so and it looks like Levy has sanctioned the £25.9m bid after meeting with the player’s agents last week.

Tottenham need midfielders. At least one and probably two.

Gomes has been a solid player for Everton this season, with 28 appearances across all competitions, and the 25-year-old still has his peak years ahead of him.

He’s made 29 appearances for Portugal and cost Barcelona £33million in 2016, enjoying a great 16/17 season but struggling for game-time in 17/18.

Things ultimately didn’t work out for him there but he’s got his career back on track at Everton, despite injury, and they’ll be gutted if they miss out on him.

Spurs need midfielders after the loss of Mousa Dembele and Victor Wanyama’s powers waning. They’ve been left short there this season with injuries to Harry Winks and Eric Dier, and we expect at least another one to join Tottenham if Gomes makes the move down south to north London this summer.

That’s looking likely now. The Gomes to Tottenham move has been gather steam for the the past month and this is the clearest indication yet that he will be a Tottenham player before too long.

Spurs fans should be happy that Levy is getting business down early after two windows without a single new player coming in and we’re convinced that next season they’ll be wondering why they doubted Pochettino over Gomes.

Pochettino has said before he only wants players that will improve his squad. Tottenham don’t buy players needlessly and that should be good enough for the fans to put their trust in the man who’s delivered them a Champions League final place.
