Arsenal are keen on a move to sign Andre Gomes from FC Barcelona this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Independent, as quoted by talkSPORT, is reporting that the north London side are eying a deal to bring the 24-year-old Portuguese midfielder to The Emirates this summer.

Unai Emery is thought to still be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as he looks to try and assemble a squad capable of at least breaking back into the top four next season.

According to the same report, Gomes is widely expected to leave the Camp Nou this summer, and Arsenal are reportedly one of the clubs interested in signing him.

The same article says that Gomes has also attracted interest from the likes of Chelsea FC and Tottenham Hotspur in recent weeks.

However, the article also claims that new Arsenal boss Emery has identified Gomes as a perfect signing this summer as he prepares for his first season in charge at The Emirates.

Arsenal are still believed to be on the lookout for a number of signings as they bid to try and break back into the top four next season.
