Recent reports suggest that Portuguese midfielder Andre Gomes is likely to leave Barca at the end of the campaign, after two hapless seasons at the Camp Nou.

The club's supporters have made their unhappiness with the midfielder known on many occasions, and he has even admitted that his time at Barca has been a "living hell".

Gomes, however, is not the first transfer flop at the Catalans. There have been many before him who have come in with a big reputation and been unable to shine.

Marc Overmars, who the Spanish side signed from Arsenal in 2000, did not feature regularly in his four years at the club. The Dutchman contributed to just 37 goals in 141 matches for Barca, a return he might not be too proud of.

Portugal international Ricardo Quaresma also spent a season at Barca but not to great effect, while 2005 signing Maxi Lopez failed to make the grade during his two seasons at the Spanish giants.

The signing of former Juventus defender Gianluca Zambrotta in 2006 did not work out as planned, while Aleksandr Hleb also failed to live up to expectations when he joined the Blaugrana from Arsenal in 2008.

Keirrison was also deemed a flop by Barca fans after failing to break through to the first team in the five years he was contracted to the club. The Brazilian signed for Barca in 2009, the same season Ukrainian defender Dmytro Chygrynskiy did.

The centre back, who was brought in at the request of Pep Guardiola, left just a season later, and is considered one of the club's most bizarre signings of all time, along with Ibrahim Afellay and Alexandre Song.

Do you think Gomes has been one of the club's worst signings of all time? Let us know in the comments section below.
