Liverpool To Rival Arsenal For Charlton Athletic Defender Joe Gomez

Reports are out claiming that Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is confident winning the race for Charlton Athletic defender Joe Gomez.

The Mirror reported that Rodgers is closing in on exciting young prospect, Gomez, and expects to complete a £3.5m deal – with significant add-ons that could take the final figure beyond £5m – before the end of the week.

England U19 international Gomez is seen ultimately as a centre-half, but played most of last season for Championship side Charlton at right-back.

The Catford-born player is just 18, but is regarded as a massive prospect and Liverpool believe they can repeat the success they enjoyed in buying London-born players Raheem Sterling and Jordon Ibe as teenagers.

The talented youngster is also wanted by Arsenal.
