André Gomes 8

Everton moved to bolster their options in central midfield with the acquisition of Andre Gomes on a season-long loan from Barcelona in the summer of 2018.

The 25-year-old emerged as a potential deadline day target that August with reports that Director of Football, Marcel Brands, and manager, Marco Silva, might launch a late bid to sign him as they sought to tie up the signature of his Nou Camp team-mate Yerry Mina.

The Portuguese, who had been linked with both Arsenal and Tottenham was recovering from a hamstring strain at the time and would be unlikely to be ready for action until the following month at the earliest but that did not stop the Blues adding his talents to their squad before the transfer window closed. They would pay a €2.25m loan fee were also believed to be paying his salary for the season.

Gomes began his career in his native Portugal with Benfica before moving to Valencia four years ago, initially on loan. Over the course of 63 appearances over the following two seasons, he garnered the attention of Barcelona who snapped him up for €35m.

Brought in as a replacement for Sergio Busquets, his time at Nou Camp didn't go according to plan, however, despite playing 46 matches and scoring three times.

He is believed to have long favoured a move to the Premier League and almost joined Spurs the previous year, only for the deal to fall through. But his start for Everton would be frustratingly delayed for more than two months as he recovered from a hamstring injury. It finally came when he dispaced captain Tom Davies against Crystal Palace and put in a very good performance.
