Everton have been quoted an asking price of 20 million euros (£17.4m) by Barcelona for silky playmaker Andre Gomes this summer, according to Calcio Mercato.
Gomes has been impressing during his loan spell at Goodison Park, but that has apparently not encouraged Barca to bump up their asking price for the Portuguese international.
The Toffees reportedly face competition from Lazio, Inter and Roma for Gomes’ signature but also reportedly have an option to sign the midfielder.
But that is apparently not a compulsory one, so Barca are free to sell to the highest bidder. That said, Marco Silva may hope the fact that Gomes is already settled on Merseyside may count in his favour.
The supporters took to Twitter to urge their club to snap up Gomes, perhaps fearing that the low asking price will attract attention from across Europe.
They want Gomes to make his loan move permanent and we’ve put together some of the most excited reaction from Twitter…
