Everton have opened talks with Barcelona over the signing of Andre Gomes.

But Blues boss Marco Silva says the club still have work to do in order to convince the on-loan midfielder to stay at Goodison.

Everton face competition from clubs at home and abroad to land Gomes this summer but Silva played down talk of the 25-year-old having agreed terms with Spurs.

The Blues had been encouraged that the on-loan star wants to remain as part of the squad but Silva reiterated that Gomes has still yet to come to a firm decision over his future.
