Andre Gomes has dismissed comparisons to former Everton midfielder Mikel Arteta, claiming he will try his best to have similar influence at Goodison Park as the Spaniard did.

Could Andre Gomes eventually be considered on the same level as Mikel Arteta?

Gomes’ style as a smooth operator in the middle of the park has naturally drawn comparisons to the last man to play in a similar way for Everton in fellow Iberian Arteta, who like Gomes, was much more of an artist than a worker for the Blues.



However Gomes was quick to dispel these comparisons, claiming that Arteta is a “legend” at Everton.

As a self-confessed Mikel Arteta fanboy, this is music to my ears.

As reported by the Liverpool Echo, the 26-year old said: Gomes did though admit that he would try to emulate the way in which Arteta had influence over Everton while at Goodison Park, with the former Valencia and Barcelona man continuing: I will do my best to have the same influence he did on that Everton team with my own style and I want to adapt to the system of the team to reach our goals.

Brought back to Merseyside for just £22million, Gomes’ signing has shown that Everton have ambition and that they are prepared to spend money in order to progress as a football club.
