Albion are interested in Liverpool prospect Joe Gomez.

The Seagulls have identified the versatile 20-year-old as a potential addition to their defensive options.

Londoner Gomez, formerly with Charlton, has represented England from under-16s through to under-21 level.

He can operate in either full-back position or in the centre.

First team opportunities for Gomez in two years at Anfield have been limited by a combination of a knee injury and hot competition for places.

He was linked last month with Bournemouth.
