Aston Villa have been linked with a January swoop for Joe Gomez in recent weeks.
Reliable reporter Gregg Evans claimed in a story for The Athletic on Wednesday that the defender is ‘admired’ at Villa Park, which has had a number of fans talking on social media.
Villa have four senior centre-backs on the books at this moment in time, one of which is Axel Tuanzebe, who joined on loan over the summer.
Should Villa sign Gomez?
Yes, get him in!
No, not needed!
Steven Gerrard has been promised a huge January transfer kitty by NSWE, and it seems as if he could look at his former employers in a possible move for Gomez.
The 24-year-old made just his fourth start of the season for Liverpool on Wednesday evening and is yet to start a Premier League game.
Villa fans react
Well-known page @villareport shared what Evans had to say about Gomez on social media. This is what these Villa fans had to say in reply, with one labelling it as ‘weird’ and others not keen on a move.
“Not by me. Always looked shambolic next to the best Premier League defender of the last decade. Ezri Konsa without the ability to read a game.”
“Going nowhere! Nat Phillips leaving so they won’t let 2 go”
“Doesn’t get in the team”
“Is he better than Mings?? I don’t even know man.”
