Struggled at Barca.never been impressed tbh. Big no from me
As far as the first point, being a squad player at Barca is not a great football shame. However, I totally agree with your second point. I was never impressed with him at Valencia prior and always wondered why they were hyping him for a 45M transfer. Then I realized Jorge Mendes was his agent. A quick glance on transfermarkt shows that Gestifute is still his agent so this will not be happening. Typically the press don't link us to their clients even in the fake news.

Is he not a Mendes client?

Just assuming because he's a well known Portuguese player and he came from Valencia and both of those things would hint he's a Mendes client.

Indeed he is. Gestifute is Mendes' Agency. Have you peeked at how all the Mendes clients have done recently? Gomes, Joao Mario, Sanches, James, etc. All gone for big money and not justified it. Only Cristiano has and Silva looks like he might. Mendes' star seems to be dimming. In Portugal, Sporting will not do business with him.

Agreed. He gets into clubs like Valencia and recently Wolves and gets them to purchase his players at much higher fees than what they're worth.

Levy won't deal with him anyway so this link is obviously bogus.

Tottenham and West Ham ready for deadline day tug-of-war over Barcelona star Andre Gomes

The midfielder is open to a Premier League switch with Pochettino keen and the Hammers frustrated by William Carvalho

Tottenham and West Ham are involved in a deadline day tug of war over Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes.

The Hammers have made an audacious loan move for the 24-year-old Portuguese after growing frustrated in their pursuit of Sporting’s William Carvalho.

Mauricio Pochettino is keen, however, with Gomes open to a switch to the Premier League.

The Spurs boss is looking to strengthen his midfield options ahead of the north Londoners’ return to the Champions League where Real Madrid and Dortmund lie in wait in their group.

Barcelona want an expensive loan fee for Gomes but are willing to sanction his temporary departure ahead of the transfer deadline.

Having made only 17 appearances for the Spanish giants last season. Gomes is not in the plans of new coach Ernesto Valverde and is ready to quit the Nou Camp in search of regular first team action.

Telegraph as well now:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2017/08/30/tottenham-west-ham-battle-barcelona-star-andre-gomes/

Tottenham and West Ham in battle for Barcelona star Andre Gomes

Tottenham Hotspur are locked in a transfer deadline day battle with West Ham United to sign Andre Gomes on loan from Barcelona.

The Portugal international midfielder has been made available by Barcelona on a season-long loan, which has alerted Spurs and the Hammers.

Tottenham expressed an interest in Gomes earlier this week, but face late competition from West Ham after they failed to agree a deal for William Carvalho.

Gomes joined Barcelona from Valencia last summer, but has endured a difficult time at the Nou Camp and wants to play regular football.

Prior to his switch to Barca, Gomes was rated as one of the best midfield prospects in Europe, which is why both Tottenham and West Ham are keen to try to kick-start his career. It is understood that the loan deals being discussed by Tottenham and West Ham for Gomes both involve a hefty fee and an expensive wage packet. Juventus are also interested.

Gets booed when playing for Barca watch Barca quite a lot and have to say he is shocking
Has been bad for them. But Enrique havent helped him much either - playing him all of a sudden in big games , not helping him settle

Wouldn't be against him, he'd be an interesting option for our midfield, reminds me a young Tiago (Chelsea and Juve, not Bayern and Barce), subtle but clever and very composed.

That said, if Mendes is his agent, this just has no legs at all.
