Arsenal look set to beat Manchester City to the signing of Charlton Athletic defender Joe Gomez, according to the Mirror.
Gomez, 17, is regarded as one of the most promising players in the Sky Bet Championship and he looks set for a bright future in professional football.
The publication claims that Guy Luzon’s Charlton Athletic will demand at least £8 million for their highly-rated youngster, and it seems that there is going to be a transfer tussle for the starlet in this upcoming summer transfer window.
The defender is renowned for his versatility and can be utilised as either a right-back or centre-back – something that will be very appealing to a number of Premier League sides.
Gomez was a fundamental component of the England under-17 side that won the European Championships in Malta last year, and his mature performances have certainly gone unnoticed.
Chartlon Athletic fans…. Would you be gutted to lose Joe Gomez this summer? Or would you take the £8 million offer that could be handed to you? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments section below!
