Newcastle United may reportedly move for Joe Gomez in the summer if he is allowed to leave Liverpool.
The 24-year-old has endured a frustrating campaign at Anfield with just five starts and eight substitute appearances being made in all competitions.
Although Gomez’s versatility remains important to Jurgen Klopp‘s squad, there may come a time when the Merseyside giants decide to cash in on his services.
According to The Athletic, Newcastle could emerge as rivals to Aston Villa for the England international’s signature.
While Villa are said to be prioritising a bid for Gomez, the Magpies will have the financial firepower to spend more on the player should they avoid relegation from the Premier League.
Gomez still has just under two-and-a-half years remaining on his contract, but Liverpool have not provided him with an extension to his deal since the end of 2018.
