Gomes has been in and out of the starting XI since he swapped Valencia for a spell at the Catalan giants and both Tottenham and West Ham could offer him the starts he craves ahead of next summer's World Cup in Russia.

With a new striker, an additional winger and another creative midfielder on many Tottenham fans' wishlists, they will be hoping their chairman Daniel Levy pulls a few rabbits out of his proverbial hat in the coming hours.
