LIVERPOOL are poised to land teenage Charlton defender Joe Gomez for £3.5m and are expected to follow up that signing by reviving interest in Southampton and England right-back Nathaniel Clyne.

Centre-back Gomez, 18, is believed to have caught the eye of several Premier League sides but the Reds appear to have won the race for his signature by activating a release clause.

He is set for a medical on Merseyside today, and Clyne could be next to head north to Anfield after Southampton signed a potential replacement in £4.7m Portugal full-back Cedric Soares from Sporting Lisbon.
