Spurs did not add new players to their squad in the last two transfer windows, meaning there is now a willingness to strengthen the squad in the summer.

However, Tottenham could face competition from West Ham United, who are said to have recently joined the race for Gomes’ signature after his solid season at Everton under Marco Silva.

The Catalan newspaper explain the La Liga winners are planning to offload Gomes and are confident of getting at least €25m for him, and there is a belief at Camp Nou that the Premier League could be his next destination.
