There appears to still be a chance that André Gomes will no longer be an Everton player by the end of the week if all goes to plan.

That’s according to Sporx in Turkey, who have the latest on Fenerbahçe’s pursuit of the Portuguese midfielder.

They explain the Turkish side were originally ‘not keen’ on the Everton player when he was ‘offered by agents’, and that was because of his ‘injury history’.

That’s understandable, seeing as Gomes did have a number of medical issues between 2018 and 2021, including an ankle injury that made him miss 109 days between 2019 and 2020, but that is all in the past.

However, the good news for Gomes is that everything changed when the Süper Lig club’s manager, Ismail Kartal, ‘approved’ the idea of signing the Everton player.

When that happened, Fenerbahçe decided to take the next step, which was to request ‘detailed health reports’ of Gomes, whom they do consider ‘the last option’ on their list of targets.

Their top choice would be Al-Musrati from SC Braga, but that is proving a bit tougher than first thought, which is why alternatives are being looked, which now include the Everton midfielder.

Since the Turkish transfer window closes on Friday, there is still a bit of time to get a transfer over the line, and considering Gomes didn’t suffer any setback at Lille last year and hasn’t been injured since 2021, there is potentially good news on the horizon for the Sean Dyche outcast.
