Andre Gomes to Everton is almost a done deal according to ex-Leeds United star Danny Mills who believes that it’ll be a ‘masterstroke’ capture.
The former England international star is assured of the fact that the Toffee’s will land the Portuguese and it will be a ‘fabulous’ signing once made official.
Several reports are suggesting Andre Gomes will be announced as an Everton player tomorrow for a fee of around £20M.

Gomes agreed to terms with the Merseyside outfit last week according to a report published in Football Insider.
According to recent updates, Everton are ready to meet Barcelona’s initial asking price of £22million which could rise up to £31million with additional clauses.
“It’s looking like a done deal,” Mills said.
“It will be a masterstroke if Everton can sign a player of that quality for £30million or less.
“He took a few months to settle into the Premier League, which is not unusual for players joining from overseas, but has proved to be a fabulous player who really does look the part.
“Tottenham and West Ham have been linked with him, so Everton will definitely view it as a real coup. He’s a player Marco Silva has made clear he wanted.
“Clearly, the Portugese link with the manager will have been a factor in Gomes’ thinking. He will have been saying, ‘where will I be happiest’? It appears that will be Everton.”
The 25-year-old formed a reliable partnership in the middle of the park with Idrissa Gueye after recovering from a minor injury in the earlier parts of the season.
He has kept no secret of his desire to leave Camp Nou in search of quality first team football which he received at Goodison Park.
