By on September 18, 2017

The transfer window is now closed but clubs are already thinking ahead to January and next summer so we’ll bring you all the latest gossip from around the globe. Today, Liverpool are linked with Federico Chiesa while Tottenham are after Andre Gomes…

Liverpool eye Chiesa

First up and according to a report in the Mirror, Liverpool are showing a keen interest in signing Fiorentina wonderkid Federico Chiesa.

The 19-year-old is the son of former Italian international Enrico Chiesa and he’s been forging an impressive career of his own since coming through the youth ranks at Fiorentina.

Chiesa broke in to the first team set-up last year and he’s already provided one goal and one assist during his three appearances in Serie A this campaign.

The teenager is predominantly a right winger but he can play anywhere across the attacking positions while he’s already represented Italy at under-21 level.

The Mirror are citing a report from Calciomercato that claims his potential has alerted Jurgen Klopp with the Liverpool boss hoping to sign Chiesa either in January or next summer.

However, the Merseysiders will face some stiff competition for his signature as the newspaper says Juventus, AC Milan and Inter Milan are also showing a keen interest in the attacker.

Spurs in for Gomes

Next up and the Express are carrying a report that claims Tottenham are set to launch a swoop for £20m-rated Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes.

The Portuguese international has struggled to hold down a regular starting spot at Barca since joining the club from Valencia in 2016 and he doesn’t look to be in Ernesto Valverde’s plans for this season either.

The 24-year-old was linked with Tottenham during the closing stages of the summer transfer window but a move failed to materialise despite Barca being open to letting the midfielder leave.

It looks like Spurs are going to renew their interest as the Express are citing a report from The Sun that claims the north Londoners are hoping to sign Gomes in a bargain £20m deal this winter.

The newspaper suggests that Barcelona are ready to do business and Gomes is believed to be open to the idea of moving to Tottenham during the January window in order to secure more regular action ahead of next summers World Cup finals.

If Spurs do manage to sign the Portuguese star, then the report indicates that would end Mauricio Pochettino’s interest in Everton’s Ross Barkley – who has also been linked with a move to north London.
