Tottenham looking to replace key midfielder with young Barcelona flop

Andre Gomes

Tottenham could be looking to replace Belgian midfielder Mousa Dembele with Barcelona’s Andre Gomes, according to The Mirror.

The report claims that the Belgian midfielder could be on his way out of the Premier League in the summer, with a move to a Chinese Super League club being a possibility.

Spurs would be looking to plug the gaping hole left by the 30-year-old and would be moving swiftly to bring in a replacement. The report claims that the club is looking at a number of viable options and one of them is former Valencia man Gomes.

Dembele was a target for a number of Chinese clubs earlier in the season and he could become the latest player to move to the league in the summer. Spurs, however, will only be looking to sell Dembele if they get a decent bid for the Belgian.

Another factor that could play a part in the Belgian moving away from the club could be the fact that he would have only 12 months remaining on his contract at the end of this season.

Gomes, on his part, has struggled to nail a place down in the Barcelona side since his move from Valencia a few years ago.

Gomes has only played in 16 La Liga games this season with just 6 starts to his name. What is a more eye-opening stat is that the player has not scored or assisted a single goal for the club in any competition despite Barcelona being one of the best-attacking sides in the world.

The former Valencia man might just fulfil his potential if he works under a manager like Mauricio Pochettino and with Champions League football guaranteed next season, we do have a bargaining chip on our side. It will be interesting to see what happens with Gomes and hopefully, he turns up in the white of Tottenham next season.
