According to The Mirror, Chelsea’s £40 million bid to sign Andre Gomes has been rejected by the La Liga club Valencia. The 22-year-old Portuguese star is expected to leave Mestalla this summer in hopes of playing in European competitions.
Andre Gomes is one of the Portuguese players who has impressed the most in the Euro 2016. His work rate has been high over the 90 minutes of a match, thus the reason why Conte is highly impressed with him. Gomes is a box to box midfielder who will fit perfectly in Conte’s strategic play.
As seen in EURO 2016, Gomes has been working tirelessly in the midfield, whether it has been attacking or the defending, the midfielder is highly versatile in his approach and isn’t afraid to play on the wings. The Portuguese youngster is pacey and someone who can dribble a lot in the course of 90 minutes.
Andre Gomes’ performance in EURO 2016 has led to an increase in his market value this summer, a reason why Chelsea’s £40 million bid has been shrugged off. Chelsea will need to break their bank if they are to land him at Stamford Bridge. Conte will keen be on having him, as he needs players who are tireless, hard-workers over the course of 90 minutes of a match.
