Arsen prepared to agree signing of £88million star for Arsenal

Arsenal are looking to strengthen their midfield department after the departures of Jack Wilshere and Santi Cazorla and reports suggest that Emery wants to sign Andre Gomes from Barcelona.
.
Multiple outlets have reported that the Spanish boss is prepared to agree the signing of the Portuguese international, who has normally warmed the bench at the Nou Camp.
.
According to ESPN sources, the former Sevilla boss is pushing to agree the signing of the 24-year-old Seleccao star to reinforce his midfield. It is mentioned that Emery is especially keen to secure his signature for the north Londoners.
.
On the other hand, The Independent have reported that the Gunners’ manager is so eager to sign the former Valencia star that he is prepared to agree the sales of other players to get the deal done.
.
The British outlet have stated that the Catalan giants would want around £30million for Gomes, but it must be remembered that the player’s current deal with the club will expire in 2021 and it has a huge release clause (FCB ) of 100 million euros (£88million).
.
In the presence of star midfielders like Iniesta, Rakitic, Busquets and Paulinho, the ex Benfica midfielder could only start 6 times in the La Liga last season and he surely needs to move for regular first team football. In such a scenario, a move to Arsenal could be fruitful for him.
.
Gomes was part of the Portuguese national team that won the European Championships in 2016 but he was not selected in the 2018 World Cup squad that got eliminated in the Round of 16.
