Paul Merson seems to be more than sure that Everton midfielder Andre Gomes is moving to the white hart lane this summer.
According to a report published in The Telegraph, Tottenham are keenly interested in the Barcelona midfielder who is on a season-long loan to Everton.
Reacting to the report, the Sky Sports pundit confirmed his liking for the lad and went on to add that his playing style suited Tottenham a lot.
“I like him [Gomes],” Merson told Soccer Saturday. “There is talk of Tottenham coming in for him for £30 million. Again, this is what happens, you have a couple of good games and other teams look at the loan situation and think ‘Oh, he’s only on loan, I’ll take him’. He’s a Tottenham player… He’s a Tottenham player!
Jeff Stelling then tells Merson: “Evertonians will tell you, he’s an Everton player!”.
“And rightly so,” Merson responded. “He’s there now and if he keeps on getting the confidence, but he does get brought off now and again when he isn’t playing too well. He’s not one of them players who you field the team around. You don’t feel that he’s the star man.”
Andre Gomes has put up many good performances this season for the Merseyside team, and Everton will be hoping to keep him or at the very least extend his loan deal for yet another season.
