Tottenham end interest in Barcelona's Andre Gomes after Everton loan spell
Last Updated: 31/05/19 9:17am
Tottenham have ended their interest in Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes, Sky Sports News understands.
The Portugal international impressed last season on loan at Everton, where he made 29 appearances.
Barcelona are keen to offload Gomes, but are demanding a fee between £25m and £35m for the 25-year-old.
Tottenham's London rivals West Ham had an £18m bid for Gomes rejected by Barca earlier this month.
Sky Sports News understands the Hammers remain interested and will do their utmost in their attempts to bring him to the London Stadium.
Gomes joined Barcelona from Valencia in July 2016 and has two years remaining on his contract at the Nou Camp.
He made 78 appearances during two seasons with the Catalan club, helping them win La Liga in 2018 and back-to-back Copa del Rey crowns.
Spurs end their interest in the Barcelona midfielder 24 hours after Sky Sports News reported that Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish will reject any further advances from Tottenham.
Three bids for Grealish were made last summer - the highest totalling close to £25m - and Mauricio Pochettino was ready to reignite his interest had Villa failed to secure promotion.
But the 23-year-old, who has been with Villa since the age of six, will remain with the midlands club next season and captain them in their first season back in the top flight.
