‘I am told’ – Journalist claims Spurs would ‘happily take’ Liverpool player

Journalist Graeme Bailey has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur are among a whole host of clubs interested in Liverpool defender Joe Gomez.

Gomez has fallen down the pecking order at Anfield this season, with Jurgen Klopp seemingly preferring the likes of Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip and Ibrahima Konate over the 24-year-old. 

90 min claimed last week that the England international was keen to leave Liverpool at the end of the season in order to get regular game time under his belt and he was hopeful that the Reds would sanction a transfer.

The report revealed that Spurs were one of several Premier League clubs who would be interested in the centre-back if he became available.

Bailey has now revealed that the likes of Tottenham, Everton, West Ham and Newcastle are all watching Gomez’s situation. 

The journalist explained that the Liverpool star is worried about not making the England squad for the Qatar World Cup if he continues to warm the bench at Anfield.

Bailey told Anfield Watch: “I understand that Gomez is hugely worried about his England chances, as Gareth Southgate is a huge fan and would like to take him to Qatar later this year – but he can’t pick him if he isn’t playing.”

“Now Liverpool and Klopp have a huge decision to make, and there are no shortage of clubs looking to land the 24-year-old. 

“I am told Tottenham, Newcastle, West Ham, soon to be promoted Fulham, and Stanley Park neighbours Everton would all happily take Gomez.”

Spurs Web Opinion 

Gomez would be an excellent signing for Spurs as I see him as a natural fit in Conte’s back three. However, there will likely be a major scramble for the 24-year-old’s signature in the summer if he does become available. Newcastle will likely be the favourites to snap him up, given that they do not mind paying over the odds for players.
