After concluding his season-long loan stint at Lille, André Gomes has rejoined Everton, bringing with him a commendable record of three goals and two assists across 27 appearances during his tenure in France.
Regrettably for the 30-year-old midfielder, his return to the Toffees’ fold has been greeted with a lack of inclusion in Sean Dyche’s strategic schemes for the ongoing season. As a result, André Gomes remains on the fringes, unable to secure a single opportunity for competitive action.
However, his recent lack of playing time hasn’t gone unnoticed, especially in the eyes of Italian football giants, Juventus, who have exhibited a keen interest in acquiring the services of the Portuguese player.
Throughout his tenure at Everton, André Gomes has demonstrated his prowess in a substantial tally of 100 appearances, during which he netted two goals and provided seven pivotal assists. Moreover, his international repute is noteworthy, having represented the Portuguese national team on 29 occasions.
World Football Rumours
In a recent development reported by the highly regarded sports outlet Calciomercato.it, Juventus may find themselves in the market for a new midfielder due to ongoing off-field issues involving their own stars, Paul Pogba and Nicolò Fagioli. This predicament has led the Turin-based club to explore the potential acquisition of André Gomes to fortify their midfield ranks.
The valuation of André Gomes as assessed by Everton currently stands at €15 million. Nevertheless, Juventus appears somewhat reticent to meet this asking price, primarily due to the fact that the Portuguese midfielder’s existing contract with Everton extends until 2024.
Consequently, the Italian outfit is actively exploring avenues to strike a more economical deal to secure the services of the skillful midfielder in the upcoming January transfer window.
