Tottenham Hotspur has already set their sights on Wolves midfielder Joao Gomes as they look to add a third player during this transfer season.
Timo Werner, on loan from RB Leipzig, and Radu Dragusin, on a permanent contract from Genoa, have already been added by Ange Postecoglou’s team. Right now, Gomes is said to be a target as attention turns to their midfield.
Tottenham Joao Gomes, Wolf
Joao Gomes, a midfielder for Wolves, is coveted by Tottenham.
Three positions were on Tottenham’s mind going into the January transfer window: a midfielder, a backup center-back, and a versatile attacker.
Spurs are reportedly keeping an eye on a new midfield player if a story from Fla Web in Brazil is to be trusted. Timo Werner and Radu Dragusin have already checked the first two boxes.
Tottenham is reportedly keeping an eye on Joao Gomes of Wolves, and Ange Postecoglou’s team has hinted that they want to make an attempt to recruit him “very soon.”
The Brazilian was only signed by Wolves last year. Flamengo (The Athletic) paid them £15 million for him, and according to the source, they have now made it plain that they will not allow him to depart for less than £30 million.
Gomes has another year left on his Wolves deal, which ends in the summer of 2028. There’s a one-year option for the Wanderers to prolong that.
Gomes has amazing talent.
Joao Gomes, a Tottenham target, has proven his exceptional abilities since joining Wolves and was highly regarded in his native Brazil.
The 22-year-old has only missed two Premier League games this season. One of the top names on the roster, he has even been called “incredible” by Gary O’Neil for his performance a few weeks ago in the middle of the park with Mario Lemina (Express&Star).
Gomes will face a ban after being sent off in last week’s FA Cup match against Brentford. That means he won’t be able to play any more this month, which allows him to concentrate on a possible transfer in the event that an offer is made.
If Tottenham is indeed interested in him, this may be fantastic news, but it’s unclear if Wolves will be willing to let him go in the middle of the season.
