Arsenal look to have been given a boost in their pursuit of Andre Gomes after he was left out of Barcelona’s squad for their pre-season tour.
According to Spanish outlet Sport, Gomes is nearing an exit from Nou Camp with talks over the past few days intensifying.
The report says the two clubs with the strongest interest in Gomes are Arsenal and Juventus but a deal is stalling over the fee.
Barcelona want £17.7million but a deal for around £15.9m could be reached.
Nevertheless, Gomes’ omission from Barcelona’s pre-season tour squad means his time at the club is on the verge of ending.
