Andre Gomes

According to the Sun, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Barcelona outcast Andre Gomes this summer. Newly-promoted Premier League outfit Wolverhampton Wanderers are also reportedly keen on the Barcelona midfielder.

Gomes, 24, arrived from Valencia in 2016 amidst a lot of fanfare but has failed to live up to the billing at the Camp Nou. The Portuguese has scored just three goals for Barcelona over the past two seasons and has played a bit-part role for the Catalan giants in their La Liga triumph this past campaign.

Lack of game time under Ernesto Valverde at Barcelona saw Gomes get axed from the Portugal squad for the World Cup 2018. However, the Spanish champions are now preparing a summer squad overhaul with up to eight stars set to be axed, including Gomes, reports the Sun.

Tottenham certainly need to bolster their central midfield options, with Mousa Dembele facing an uncertain future at North London. Despite Gomes’ struggles at Barcelona, Mauricio Pochettino should throw a lifeline at him as the 24-year-old still has a lot to offer at the very highest level.

If Gomes does want to develop and revive his stuttering career, there is no doubt that he needs to leave the Spanish giants this summer. At Tottenham, the Portuguese will get the platform to prove his ability and would also provide us with the depth we require in the midfield.

It will be interesting to see how much Barcelona demand for the 24-year-old midfielder, given that Wolves are also interested in him.

With rumours linking Andre Gomes to Spurs again, here is how our fans reacted on Twitter.

Tottenham handed major boost as Barcelona star picks up hamstring injury ahead of Champions League clash

Harry Kane of Tottenham scores against Barcelona

Football.london reports that Ivan Rakitic could be a doubt for our Champions League clash against Barcelona next month.

The Croatian was subbed in the 3-2 win over Spain in the Nations League and didn’t play against England recently.

An update on Barcelona’s Twitter account was posted and didn’t confirm when the player could be fit.

Should the hamstring strain be severe, the player could miss a month or more, and Tottenham need all the luck they can get in their Champions League group.

Tottenham might need to win both their clashes in the group, and they don’t come easy with us facing Inter Milan at Wembley before that big clash against Barcelona at the Nou Camp.

Spurs gave themselves a lifeline against PSV with a late win, and we need similar heroics when we face the Serie A side.

Inter Milan beat us 2-1 and we will have to win by two clear goals or by a scoreline of 1-0 to get a better head to head than our rivals.

Barcelona have had their own struggles with a porous defence, and they conceded four goals in a shock 4-3 loss to Real Betis at the Nou Camp.

This should provide Spurs with some hope for the all-important clash and it will be better if some of the top Barca players can’t play the game.

Juventus have made Christian Eriksen one of their top targets as they try to add quality in the winter window, according to Tuttosport (h/t Daily Mail).

The report adds that Paul Pogba, Adrien Rabiot and Aaron Ramsey are all targets for the Serie A giants, and a reunion with the Manchester United man is their first choice.

Should a move not work out for Pogba, Eriksen is the man Juventus believe they can get. The Dane has struggled with injury this season at Tottenham and has recorded a single goal for the side.

Juventus have made it a habit of getting some quality players on the cheap and Eriksen is yet to sign a new deal with Spurs.

Christian Eriksen Tottenham

The attacking midfielder has been missed this season but we have done a decent job without him. Spurs are fourth in the Premier League just five points behind Manchester City, and our next clash is against Chelsea after the international break.

Eriksen has had a tough time with an injury this season but has recovered from the abdominal issue. The 26-year-old played the entire 90 against Wales and is expected to play again before the end of the international break.

Eriksen scored 10 goals and provided 10 assists for Spurs in the Premier League last season, and a similar return would be great after an injury-affected campaign.

England looked set for more international heartbreak as Croatia were leading in their UEFA Nations League game.

The hosts then turned things up a notch after Jesse Lingard scored the equaliser and Tottenham star Harry Kane got the winner.

The England captain turned saviour for the side again, but another Tottenham man also turned the game on its head with his arrival.

Dele Alli didn’t start in the important clash against the Croatians but came on with around 30 minutes remaining in the tie.

The Englishman didn’t score or grab an assist but his attacking display helped England to the semi-finals of the competition.

The 22-year-old has struggled for goals and assists this season, but this performance certainly led to several Tottenham fans applauding the youngster.
