In a recent interview with Give Me Sport, journalist Dean Jones claimed that Aston Villa are among the clubs hoping to sign Anderlecht full-back Sergio Gomez. Jones said,
“Sergio Gomez was a player who actually had a lot of clubs looking at him at the end of last season before the summer window. So Villa is one of them.
“I don’t know how much progress has been made so far, but he’s definitely the one to watch.”
Gomez’s impressive figures in Belgian football
Gomez enjoyed decent form at Anderlecht as he produced plenty of productive performances on the left side of their defence. The 21-year-old has found the back of the net five times and had 12 assists in 34 appearances for the Belgian league football team.
The Badalona-born sensation performed well in both halves after averaging 1.6 tackles, 1.4 interceptions, 1.0 clearances, 1.3 shots, 1.7 key passes, 1.5 crosses and 0.7 dribbles per game in the Jupiler Pro League. He was even accurate when distributing the ball from the left flank, as evidenced by his 83% passing success rate in the Belgian top flight (stats via whoscored).
Is Gomez a decent option for Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard?
Gomez can time his tackles well to secure the ball for his side in their own half. He usually eliminates danger when needed and can shoot the ball powerfully from long range.
The Spanish full-back can create a few neat chances for his teammates in the opposing half and can even make a few runs with the ball down the left flank.
At 21, Gomez has a bright future ahead of him, so the Villans would do well to lure him to Villa Park this off-season. He will improve the quality of Aston Villa head coach Steven Gerrard’s matchday squad and provide healthy competition for Lucas Digne in the race to secure a regular starting spot at the West side. Midlands.
All things considered, Gomez will be a great option for the Villans during this summer transfer window as he is good enough to help them get into the top half of the Premier League next season.
