According to a report from Claret and Hugh, Andre Gomes could be in line to start for Everton against West Ham on Saturday, having missed around five weeks through injury.

The Portuguese ace did come on against Burnley as an 84th minute substitute just before the international break, but it now seems as though he could be ready to start for the Toffees against the Hammers.

West Ham were actually thought to be keen on signing the 26-year-old in the summer.

According to the Times, the east London outfit were prepared to pay £18 million for Gomes.

The midfielder eventually joined Everton, however, and the rest is history. He has proven to be an excellent acquisition for the Merseyside club.

 

And Gomes might just come back to haunt the Hammers.

Claret and Hugh claims that the Portugal international is in line to start for Everton against West Ham on Saturday.

And with Marco Silva’s side in desperate need of all three points, that will be a huge boost for them.
