GETTY West Ham are looking to sign Barcelona star Andre Gomes on deadline day

West Ham Barcelona Andre Gomes

Tottenham Hotspur reportedly failed to convince Barcelona to part ways with Andre Gomes on deadline day due to the Catalan's own failure to sign Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool. Maybe the loan terms couldn't be worked out, or maybe there was some sticking point in the deal that couldn't be reconciled.

The report claims that Tottenham had turned their attentions to the Barcelona man after cooling their interest in Everton playmaker Ross Barkley.

Still, unless we hear conflicting reports from some other source, we should maybe consider this transfer on the shelf for now. The Bhoys have confirmed on their official website that Edouard, 21, has signed a season-long loan deal with an option for a permanent move.

Tottenham meanwhile have left their transfer business to the end of the window, but look set to bring in another player or two before the opportunity ends on Thursday night.

It also marks the first time Islamic State has publicly agreed to a forced evacuation from territory it held in Syria . The coalition nevertheless said in a statement that it is not bound by the evacuation agreement.

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

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino will hope Gomes' unique passing ability will prove to be a great asset for his talented attacking side.

The 24-year-old midfielder arrived at the Camp Nou last summer from Valencia for €35m, plus a further €20m in add-ons, but has endured an underwhelming debut season.
