According to the Express and reports from France, Arsenal are once again showing an interest in Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes. According to a French media outlet, the Gunners are trying to negotiate a deal for the central midfielder.
Does Arsenal need Gomes?
However, with a limited transfer budget, a move for Gomes would not make sense. The Gunners have already strengthened in the centre of midfield with the signing of Uruguayan midfielder Lucas Torreira.
For me, Torreira far better represents the type of midfielder Arsenal need. They needed a talented ball-winner, who has excellent passing ability. If given a choice between Torreira and Gomes, I would prefer the South American star. .......Read more here.....
