Everton & Andre Gomes: done deal

Following a year-long loan at Goodison Park, Everton have completed the permanent signing of Andre Gomes.

Gomes played 27 times for Everton in the Premier League in 2018-19, scoring once and contributing one assist.

Everton confirmed that Gomes has agreed a five-year deal with the Toffees.

As confirmed by the club, Everton have paid Barcelona 22 million pounds for the 25-year-old midfielder.

The likes of West Ham had also tried to sign Gomes this summer.

Andre Gomes celebrates his Everton deal

In an interview with Gomes on the Everton website, the midfielder said the following:

I’m really happy to sign the contract with Everton – it wasn’t hard to decide, it was an easy decision and I’m very happy to have made it.

I know the Club made a massive effort to sign me and I’m very happy and thankful to them. I said during the year that I felt part of a family and that is the most important thing to me.

Last year was a really good experience for me. I just wanted to feel part of something special and I found it here. It was good for me in that moment and right now, after signing for Everton, it’s even better.

I think the ambition here is not only for me, I think it’s for all the players, the fans and the Club. We are all excited for that.

Updates on signing Chelsea’s Kurt Zouma

As confirmed by Telegraph reporter Jason Burt, after closing terms for Gomes, Everton’s attention is now on Chelsea’s Kurt Zouma.

Zouma also spent the 2018-19 season on loan at Everton.

However, it’s unclear whether Chelsea will agree to farm out Zouma again this season. That’s because Chelsea are now unable to buy any players due to a UEFA imposed transfer ban for the next two windows.
