Ian Wright urges Everton to snap up Andre Gomes on long-term deal

Ian Wright tells Everton to sign Andre Gomes on long-term deal.

Andre Gomes of Everton arrives for the Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Everton Fc at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on May 12, 2019 in London, England.

Ian Wright has suggested to BBC's Match of the Day program [12/05/2019] that signing Andre Gomes may take Everton to the next level.

The Portugal international has been a revelation since joining Everton on a season-long loan from Barcelona last summer.

With the Premier League season done and dusted, naturally the focus is now on whether the Toffees can snap him up on a permanent basis.

Manager Marco Silva told The Telegraph on Sunday that he and Marcel Brands will do everything possible to keep the £30 million-rated 25-year-old at Goodison Park.

 

Silva's side drew 2-2 away at Tottenham on Sunday, having beaten Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United in recent months - and drawn with runners-up Liverpool.

And Wright reckons that the Merseysiders could be a 'bit of a problem' next season if a deal can be secured for Gomes.

"Gomes, are they going to be able to keep him? If they can keep people like that, Everton are going to cause a bit of a problem next season," he told BBC's Match of the Day program.
