Share

The Sunday Times reported yesterday that Liverpool are showing keen interest in Benfica midfielder Andre Gomes and manager Brendan Rodgers may even more for him in the January transfer window.

Now, Portugal media have covered this news extensively, with both O Jogo and A Bola covered a piece on it.

O Jogo claims that Gomes wants to leave Benfica due to lack of playing time while his agent Jorge Mendes is looking for interested parties. Rodgers is reportedly looking for a player of his characteristics to make up for Lucas’s absence (out with injury) and also a player with room to improve, so Liverpool might be preparing a bid for Gomes. Premier League rivals Manchester City and other Spanish clubs have also shown some interest.

A Bola reports that Benfica have already agreed to sell the midfielder for €15m, with the player’s agent Mendes is pushing the deal through.

The sum seems too much for a player who has not played enough first-team football this year, but at the same time, he is young, a box-to-box midfielder and possess excellent technical abilities who will fit all the boxes of Liverpool’s possession oriented game.

  1. Gomes now… not class even Saul ( may be for loan next year )Thanks to MD liverpool

  2. Liverpool will never sign any.

  3. Tied of rogers always talking and not doing the walk.wonder why always go for unproven player from small club and also wornout players from big clubs e.g Toure,moses,aspas,sisokho and even sakho causing instability to some of our settled players e.g agger and lucas.but think he should have pushed on for players like Berisha,montoya,rackitic,and moreno.if other big clubs can dump big amounts of money to sign big players from big clubs also like mata to man united,whats wrong with liverpool not to do the same? So please rogers should avoid going for scraps and unproven young player because hope he has seen what has been happening with arsenal in the past few season not untill they started going for big names such as ozil

  4. liverpool pls make some bid for as to boost our squad for champions league qualification. Andre Gomes is a good player and l think is a good replacement for our lucas.

  5. rodgers sign a player,we need a good and creative mildfielder.we are sick and tired of all this speculations.

  6. Liverpool is all about discovering players for other club to buy,sallah has gone to chelsea,is fenando, now and Benfica mildfilder ayre and fsg when will you buy players to make fans happi for once if the club fail to reach top 4 is your fault not rodgers.

    • I agree 100% FSG need to wake up and smell the coffee it’s all well and good Rodgers saying in the press oh they are great etc etc but if you heard the interview on talk sport the other day it was clear that he was gutted to miss out on Salah ! I think that Rodgers is a great manager and if they back him a firmly believe that in time he can give us what we all want that championship but coming back to this season this is our best chance for ages to get back into the top four and surely FSG being bessiness minded people realise you need to speculate to accumulate so please for gods sake back Rodgers and enable him to push us on YNWA

  7. livapool is al about giving al her fans sleeples nyt.am a die hard livpool fan buh @ d same tym am getin tird of livpool.pls fsg i beg in d name of god to releace d funds and to rodger,am sick of u discovering players for other teams to buy.if u guys r nt ready to do busines den al of ya should f off.livpool til i die

  8. Who writes this shit and where do they get their info from….what a joke

  9. we ar sick nd tired of all these speculations,why not for once buy us 1or 2 gud players. In fact we ar disappointed in fsg and Ian Ayre

  10. We are sick and tired of all these speculation of yours Rodgers, rodger will need a good and quality player that will boosts the club also the term why playing. You need to sign before the transfer close

  11. Our weakest link is in the middle. Get a playmaker now before it’s too late.

  12. I don’t understand the thinking of FSG if you wanna win titles you have to invest in good players to get you there. Its not like the club want get any money for winning anything. If they don’t help BR then FSG have got to go.

  13. Is it just me or isnt it obvious to everyone that Liverpool need urgently two top class full backs. Every attack down our flanks we allow the cross to come into the box . Our curent fullbacks johnson ( best wishes for a speedy recovery) and sissoko offer very little in the way of attacking play either .( Johnson was a great attacking fullback but has lost that attribute lately . A defensive mid is a neccesity as well but the style of football Rogers sets up for requires two quality attacking full backs who can defend .

  14. Doesn’t it occur to these knuckle heads John Henry & FSG that if they don’t get good players in to play with & support Suarez and we dont make CL he’s gonna leave in the summer.

  15. Well I dnt know the kind of politics they play over there but all we want is to get good and quality players or else we are going to miss out of the chmpns league spot again

  16. FSG are not football oriented. Just business and profit making only not interested with what goes on in the field.

  17. liverpool must sign gomes *y.n.w.a

  18. First,it was Jorginho,salah.tello,Berisha,Adam Johnson.now it’s Gomes.speculations & no action.LFC has d most depleted squad in Epl,yet,we talk of top 4,title challenge watch out 4 Man Utd’s resurgence,they ‘ve shown some seriousness in d transfer market.As 4 Suarez;i pity him.UP LIVERPOOL4 EVER!

  19. Liverpool is a woundeful club…pls FSG help liverpool fans and help the club itself..PLS lets sign we dont hv defencive midfield n gud fullbacks must we struggle to win..its time you guys should kwn what liverpoolfc mean..wakeup from your dream

  20. lfc…..the fact that we cannot kiss or elbow ,is enough for us to realise that they’re some certain things that seen very close to us but is still beyond our reach…best wishes lfc in your hunt for the epl title,the top 4 race and your inactiveness in the transfer market….Y.N.W.A……
