Aston Villa make cash bid for Liverpool defender Joe Gomez

Aston Villa have made a move for Liverpool defender Joe Gomez.

The Birmingham Mail says Aston Villa have reportedly submitted an offer to Liverpool for Gomez.

Gomez has been linked with a move to Villa following the arrival of Anfield legend Steven Gerrard, who moved to Villa Park at the start of last month.

Gerrard could look to bring in a defender with Axel Tuanzebe a potential option for the vacancy at defensive midfield created by a long-term knee injury to Marvelous Nakamba.

Tuanzebe, on loan at Villa from Manchester United, has struggled for game-time at centre-back with Tyrone Mings and Ezri Konsa Gerrard's first-choice pairing.

Kortney Hause is out of contract at the end of the season and Villa need to find a long-term solution in defence.
