Everton transfer update – Andre Gomes

According to an Everton transfer update from Calciomercato, Toffees outcast Andre Gomes is being lined up as a potential replacement for Paul Pogba at Juventus after the France international tested positive for a banned substance and now could be set for a ban of up to four years from football.

Gomes, whose £112k-a-week contract is set to expire next June, has been identified as a financially feasible option for the Italian giants to help fill the void that Pogba could leave, though much will depend on whether Everton are okay with losing the Portuguese midfielder’s services six months early.


If they did agree to a deal with Juventus in the New Year, Everton could actually save around £2.9 million on Gomes’ salary, as they wouldn’t have to pay the remaining 26 weeks on his contract from January to June.

In light of potential new ownership at Goodison Park, shifting Gomes, who has netted two goals and seven assists in 100 appearances for Everton but not played a single minute this season and is clearly not in Dyche’s plans, may be a cost-effective solution for all parties involved (Gomes statistics – Transfermarkt).
