Serie A duo join race for Andre Gomes


Napoli and Lazio have reportedly joined the race for Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes.

The former Valencia player has been deemed surplus to requirements at the Nou Camp and will leave this summer.

Valencia are believed to have had a loan bid rejected while Arsenal and Tottenham are also interested.

But the two Serie A clubs, along with Real Betis, are also keen to sign the Spaniard, according to Spanish newspaper Sport.

Gomes is one of seven players who could leave the La Liga champions this summer as they look to raise money to bolster their squad.

Chelsea’s Willian and Eden Hazard are among the Catalan club’s chief targets.
