Newcastle, Aston Villa target Gomez ready to leave Liverpool

Joe Gomez is convinced he needs to leave Liverpool this summer.

The centre-back stood out in Jurgen Klopp's defence in 2018 and even formed an impressive partnership with Virgil van Dijk.

However, a string of injuries and the arrival of Ibrahima Konate have seen him fall down the pecking order.

Van Dijk has formed a solid duo with Joel Matip at the back and Konate poses as the next option to come in if one of the other two can't play.

The Merseysiders don't appear keen on cashing in on the 24-year-old any time soon.

However, Gomez could be looking for something more than just a supporting role and is keen on more England caps, says the Mirror.

A host of Premier League teams are interested in the former Charlton ace, such as Newcastle and Aston Villa.
