Chelsea interested in opening talks and sealing deal for Englishman

Reports have claimed Chelsea are interested in signing up Charlton defender Joe Gomez, according to the Daily Star website.

The 18-year-old can play at centre-half or right-back and has represented England at the Under-16, U17 and U19 levels.

Charlton are looking to seal a package deal with add-ons worth around £8m, with the Blues heavily backed to get a deal done.

However, they face stiff competition as Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United are all linked. © 2017 Frontier Theme
