Barcelona have agreed a deal for Portugal international and Valencia midfielder Andre Gomes.

Gomes has spent two seasons in LaLiga following his move from Benfica in July 2014.

The 22-year-old played a part as Portugal claimed a fairytale Euro 2016 success with their final win over France.

Reports suggest Barcelona paid €40million for Gomes, who made 30 appearances and scored three goals in the league last season.

A 13-time Portugal international, Gomes was apparently also a target for Barca’s fierce rivals Real Madrid.

He is set to become the latest signing for Luis Enrique in the transfer window, with the head coach having added the likes of Samuel Umtiti, Lucas Digne and Denis Suarez to his squad this off-season.

It presents another significant blow for Madrid, who have seemingly missed out on Paul Pogba.

The France international has plenty of admirers at the Santiago Bernabeu, but reports suggest they are unable to meet his valuation with Manchester United the apparent front-runners for his signature.
