Liverpool are reportedly keeping a keen eye on Villarreal winger Moi Gomez ahead of a potential bid, according to the Daily Mail.
The 21-year-old has been sent out on a season-long loan to Getafe, after falling out with Villarreal boss Marcelino, and it is thought that a bid of just £4m would be enough to bring him to Anfield, the Mail suggests.
Gomez has represented Spain at various youth levels – including three appearances for the under-21 side – and would bring some much-needed width to our side.
Jamie Carragher alluded to the fact that Brendan Rodgers’ decision to play 4-3-3 against Manchester United was the wrong strategy due to the lack of wide players currently in our squad (via Telegraph).
At Old Trafford, it was Danny Ings and Roberto Firmino that started either side of Christian Benteke, and their preference to play down the middle – whether that be up front or in a slightly deeper role – meant that the Belgian was often struggling to get into the game. His stunning goal, however, proved how valuable he is when crosses are coming in.
If we continue to play the same system, then it is important that Rodgers adds more wide players to ensure that Benteke gets similar opportunities in the future, and with Gomez being available for such a small fee, he could be a very useful addition.
