Barcelona star Andre Gomes could join Tottenham Hotspur in the January transfer window, according to many reports. Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino tracked the attacking midfielder in the summer but failed in a last-ditch attempt to lure him to the Premier League.

But according to Express, Tottenham are ready to reignite their interest in Barcelona outcast Gomes. The report adds that the north Londoners are lining up a £15million bid for the former Benfica man after pulling out of a deal to sign Ross Barkley.

Gomes, 24, emerged as a young star in his native Portugal with Benfica, and his impressive displays earned him a move to Valencia in 2014. Signed by Barcelona amidst much fanfare from Valencia in the summer of 2016, the 24-year-old midfielder has struggled to make much of an impact and is on the lookout for a new club to get some regular playing time.

The Portuguese hasn’t lived up to the lofty expectations with Barca. After a disappointing first season, he has started just two La Liga games this season and looks set for an exit. Catalan newspaper Sport report that Gomes has now asked manager Ernesto Valverde to let him leave the club this month, in a desperate attempt to play first-team football.

Barca’s recent moves in the market have put Gomes on alert. The arrival of Philippe Coutinho provides direct competition in midfield, while the return of Ousmane Dembele from injury also complicates things. Therefore, Gomes is convinced that he needs to leave this month to start playing regularly and has also spoken with Valverde.

The report also claims that Valverde wants to keep Gomes on board, but in private, has admitted to the 24-year-old that he might struggle to force his way into the starting eleven at the Camp Nou. The midfielder knows that he needs to be playing regularly in order to feature prominently for Portugal at the World Cup this summer and whether it’s a permanent move or a loan move, he simply wants to leave the Camp Nou and play.

Sport claim that Gomes has already been in contact with his agent Jorge Mendes to weigh up his opportunities. The former Benfica man has made 17 appearances for the La Liga leaders in all competitions, providing one assist but has become frustrated over the lack of first-team opportunities.

There has been a talk that this could be a quiet month for Spurs in the January transfer window. But with the emergence of reports of Gomes pushing for a move, Pochettino’s chances of landing his last year’s target may have just taken another boost.

Ryan Mason Tottenham

Ryan Mason

Former Tottenham star Ryan Mason’s football career came to a premature end after he picked up a skull fracture while playing for Hull City.

The former Spurs was facing Chelsea and hung his boots in 2018 but is adored by many fans.

Now 27, the midfielder shared a video of him scoring a goal for us four years ago and what a strike it was from the Englishman.

This was Mason’s first goal for Spurs and it came in a League Cup fixture against Nottingham Forest.

The midfielder might not have been the most gifted player ever but he always gave 100% on the pitch and his move to Hull City, unfortunately, did not work out.

Mason played for numerous clubs in the English system, serving stints at Millwall, Yeovil Town and Doncaster Rovers.

The former Spurs star also had one cap for the England national side in 2015 and a number of fans tweeted their love for the player after his post.

Vorm Eriksen Tottenham

Tottenham posted a video of their tie-up with Hotels.com, our official accommodation partner, and it was an interesting video, to say the least.

Spurs players Christian Eriksen, Michel Vorm, Ben Davies and Juan Foyth participated in some “hotel-related” drills in the two-minute long ad.

It was fun to see Eriksen and co carrying luggage around an obstacle course while the Dane also dropped drinks glasses from his tray.

There were a few laughs too as Vorm wasn’t able to fold the quilt in the right manner and some of the fans saw the funny side of the video.

Tottenham haven’t started the season well and were lucky to get all three points against Brighton in our previous game. However, it was nice to see the players having a great time in the fun advert.

The video certainly was done pretty well and the ending is something to behold too.

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish has signed a new five-year deal with Aston Villa that includes a huge release clause, according to the Sun.

The report adds that Tottenham offered £25million for the midfielder in the summer. But to sign him now, we would have to double the amount.

Grealish was one of the stars for the Villans last season but they missed out on promotion to the Premier League.

Villa aren’t doing well in the Championship as they lie 13th with 13 points from nine games. Grealish is yet to score for his boyhood club in the ongoing term.

With his selling price doubled, as per the report, some Tottenham fans weren’t sure about the club making a move for the player while a few blamed Daniel Levy for botching the transfer.
