West Ham prepare Andre Gomes move?

Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes is the subject of an ambitious bid from West Ham United, according to reports.

ESPN state the Portuguese midfielder is on the radar of the English Premier League side after a move for his international teammate William Carvalho broke down.

The Blaugrana are said to be open to offers for the former Benfica man, who is not thought to be in the plans of new Coach Ernesto Valverde.

Juventus reportedly saw a loan offer rejected on Wednesday, with the Catalan club preferring a permanent move or a loan with a compulsory purchase option.

The 24-year-old midfielder arrived at the Camp Nou last summer from Valencia for €35m, plus a further €20m in add-ons, but has endured an underwhelming debut season.

Gomes featured 47 times for the Blaugrana last season but started only 17 La Liga games and was even played at right-back on occasion.
