Liverpool’s former Charlton Academy product is set for Celtic

The former Liverpool boss, Brendan Rogers who was recently appointed the manager of the Scottish champions, Celtic, has come to an agreement with Anfield regarding a potential loan deal over the centre back, Joe Gomez, according to recent reports.

The 19 year old centre back, who was previously nominated for the LFE Championship Apprentice award, is one of Charlton’s most successful stories, along with Jonjo Shelvey, Ademola Lookman, Jordan Cousins to name a few.

Gomez only played a total of 21 games for the Addicks as part of their senior team, but had the potency, skill and commitment which attracted a range of established Championship sides, and Premier League giants.

This lead to Liverpool obtaining the young centre back for a total of £3.5m back in 2015, and is where Gomez currently resides.

The centre back has been identified by the newly appointed Celtic boss as a key target, and plans to obtain the youngster on a season-long loan deal.

In the 2015 / 2016 season Gomez faced a season-breaking injury while stepping up to his national call for the England U21s which ruled him out for the rest of the season, but will be fighting fit for the upcoming season.

Jurgen Klopp is rumoured to have great admiration for the Charlton academy product, but believes that a move to Celtic could be best – to provide the youngster with significant progress and development, which will make him a greater asset to the Reds in the long run.

Rogers will be looking to make a mark at Celtic, and continue competitive progress with the Scottish champions, and Joe Gomez could be one of many targets that can help him on his endeavour in the upcoming campaign.
