Juventus look to sign Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes
Juventus are looking to sign Barcelona midfielder André Gomes. According to MARCA, Barcelona are currently in talks with Juventus over the potential transfer, with the Italian club having been interested in the midfielder for several weeks.
After a mediocre debut campaign for Barcelona last season, Gomes has been the subject of much speculation with I Bianconeri retaining a long term interest. And with the latest knee injury to Claudio Marchisio, ruling him out for a month, Juventus are more intent than ever on getting the deal done.
However, the deal could prove to be a difficult one as Barcelona are demanding €45 million. Juventus though, want to sign Gomes on a loan which may include an option to buy.
The 24-year-old was included in the Barcelona squad to face Alavés yesterday but had to be replaced by Lucas Digne after a gastroenteritis ruled him out for the match.
Meanwhile, after the acquisition of Paulinho and Ousmane Dembélé, Barcelona are looking to sign Ángel Di María as the Phillipe Coutinho deal looks set to be in jeopardy.
