Premier League giants Chelsea have suffered a big blow as their £32million offer for Valencia star Andre Gomes was rejected earlier today, according to SkySports.
The Blues are keen to seal Gomes deal but now they will have to increase the bid as Valencia are demanding £42million.
Gomes moved to Valencia in 2014 summer on loan from Benfica but last summer he made his deal permanent for a fee around £12million.
The reports claimed that Benfica are also going to receive 25 percent of the transfer fee because of the clause in Gomes' contract.
Chelsea new boss Antonio Conte is keen to bring Gomes to Stamford Bridge, however the club is not yet prepared to increase the bid to £42m.
The good news for Chelsea is that they are the only side interested in signing the Portuguese midfielder.
Gomes had a great last season in Spain, he scored five and assisted eight goals in 41 appearances in all campaigns.
The 22-year-old is currently in France for Euro 2016 and will be focusing on his club level career once he is free from Euro next month. He started Portugal's first game against Iceland which ended as 1-1 draw yesterday.
