Everton to make permanent move for Andre Gomes
Portuguese midfielder Andre Gomes looks set to complete a permanent move to Everton from Barcelona, for a reported club record transfer fee. The former Benfica, Boavista and Valencia man has a three year contract with Barca but is deemed surplus to requirements at the Nou Camp and will be allowed to depart the club at the end of the season.

Andre Gomes, currently on loan at Goodison Park, has played 13 games so far for the Toffees since his temporary arrival and has sufficiently impressed manager Marco Silva to make a permanent transfer for the Portugal international. The 25-year-old is also wanted by French club Lyon as well as Dutch sides Feyenoord and Ajax, but it is understood that the player only wants to stay in the Premier League and has yet to have received another offer from an English club.The midfielder has played at every level for Portugal's youth teams and has 29 caps for the full international side and moved to Everton in the hope of regular appearance for his country when making a move to England.It is expected that Everton will pay £32 million to agree a deal for the midfielder, who is comfortable playing in the middle of the pitch or on either flank as an attacking winger. Everton had initially paid a fee of around 2.25 million euros for the player on loan, with a plan to be able to bring the player in on a permanent basis at the end of the season. It appears that the Toffees will be taking up their option to sign Andre Gomes now instead of July when Andre Gomes' loan deal would expire.
Andre Gomes Andre Gomes was porn in Grijo of the Porto District before moving into Benfica's youth club at 18 years old. He finally forced his way into the club's 'B' team in 2012, before making his debut for Benfica in 2012-13 season, when deciding to make a move to Valencia on a temporary basis that eventually became a permanent deal in 2015. An impressive season with Valencia would impress Barcelona sufficiently to make a 20 million euro move for the player.
Everton manager Marco Silva has been offered a transfer fund of around 100 million euros to spend on a new players in the summer and it is understood that the signing of Andre Gomes will not be included within those finances.
Gomes will sign a four year contract with the Goodison Park side.
