Liverpool are moving swiftly towards building a strong squad ahead of next season. Brendan Rodgers has already signed James Milner, Danny Ings and Adam Bogdan and is set to confirm 4th capture of the season by signing the highly rated defender Joe Gomez for a fee of £3.5million.
Initial reports suggest that Liverpool are signing a true gem of a player. The 18-year old center back, who can easily play at right back has come through the youth ranks of Charlton Athletic and represented their U-18 side at the age of only 13.
Since then Gomez has gone on to represent England at all youth levels, including the Three Lions U-17 Euro Championship winning side, where he was named in team of the tournament after playing every single minute in the tournament.
According to Liverpool Echo, The Reds have shun interest from Arsenal, Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund to sign the highly rated central defender.
As per initial reports, Liverpool have agreed a £3.5million fee with Charlton Athletic and few add ons depending upon the future development of Joe Gomez.
Initially, Gomez is tipped to be sent out on loan in his first couple of seasons at Anfield to gain the vital Premier League experience. Premier League new boys Bournemouth, Norwich and Watford would be keenly following Gomez’s availability and would like to add Gomez to their squad.
Having signed Milner, Ings and Bogdan, Liverpool are very close to announce the signing Joe Gomez. An official announcement is expected later this week.
