 Carlos Mendes Gomes has said that he’s firmly focused on Morecambe’s play-off push despite growing interest in his services.

The 22-year-old has enjoyed a wonderful season for the League Two club after finding the net 15 times and helping the club to secure a play-off finish to put them in contention for promotion to League One.

Such have been the level of his performances, the winger has attracted plenty of interest in recent weeks.

Football League World exclusively revealed that Sunderland, Barnsley and Luton Town were all eyeing a potential move for Mendes Gomes this summer, while The Athletic have also added that Scottish champions Rangers are keen too.

While interest is likely to mount as the summer progresses, the youngster has spoken out about his future and says that he’s fully focused on the League Two play-off clash with Tranmere Rovers.

Speaking on the Totally Football League Show podcast, as quoted by The Athletic, Mendes Gomes said: “I just want to play. I am enjoying my moment at Morecambe right now.

“You never know what the future holds but my main focus is with Morecambe.

“I would like to play at Wembley. It is a massive stadium with beautiful facilities; a lot of players who I grew up looking up to have stepped on that pitch and hopefully I can do the same and, who knows, maybe lift the cup.”

The verdict

What a summer it could be for this lad.

Carlos Mendes Gomes is possibly the biggest talent in League Two at the moment and what seems to be clear is that he won’t be playing there next term.

Promotion with Morecambe will surely be the priority, but if the chance to join a club in the Championship or League One comes up then you’d imagine that he’ll be keen to take it.

The 22-year-old’s best days are very much in front of him and the play-off double-header with Tranmere Rovers could go a long way to deciding where his future lies.
