According to ESPN, West Ham United are preparing an ambitious bid for out-of-favour Blaugrana midfielder Andre Gomes.

After a poor start to their league campaign, Hammers manager Slaven Bilic is desperately looking bolster his squad, and the Portuguese international is apparently seen as a perfect fit.

The report claimed that the likes of Juventus and Manchester United have been monitoring the 24-year-old's situation closely, but the London club is now hoping to lure him to the English top flight.

Gomes has apparently fallen down the pecking order at the Camp Nou, with some suggesting he is not in Ernesto Valverde's plans for the rest of the campaign.

The former Valencia star moved to the Spanish giants in July 2016 for about €35 million (R541 million), and has since made 48 appearances for the Catalan club.

England's transfer window will close at 11.00pm (midnight South Africa time) tonight, which means there is not much time left for West Ham to get this deal done.
