Footage of Andre Gomes ‘bodying’ Virgil van Dijk does the rounds after Everton announce deal

Everton have gotten off to a good start in the transfer window by already getting two players in quick succession before the pre-season.

After signing Huddersfield Town goalkeeper Jonas Lossl on a free transfer, the Toffees have announced their decision to turn Andre Gomes’ loan into a permanent deal.

Barcelona has agreed to allow the Portuguese international to move to Goodison Park in a £22 mil deal after the midfielder couldn’t really settle in with the Catalans during his time with the club.

The move definitely represents a good piece of business for the Merseysiders with the 25-year-old impressing for the Blues during the last campaign.

The Portuguese featured 29 times for the club, scoring once and provided some much needed stability for the Toffees in the center of the park.

Fans have received the news pretty well and have taken to social media to express their delight since the deal was officially announced.

A particular fan took the chance to have a go at their rivals Liverpool as well by tweeting a video of Gomes bodying and going past Reds strongman Virgil van Djik.

The Dutchman was easily the best defender in the league but the fan pointed out how Gomes had the better of him when the clubs clashed during the Merseyside derby last year.

Looks like a solid signing. Check out the video of Gomes Everton fans are using to troll their Liverpool counterparts :
