League One side Charlton have pocketed £250k from Joe Gomez’s call-up to the England senior side.
Gomez has been called up by England for the upcoming friendlies against Germany and Brazil, his first senior call-up.
Liverpool signed Gomez from Charlton in 2015 for £3.5m, with one of the add-ons being related to his international recognition.
According to The Telegraph, Liverpool were made to pay Charlton a small sum when he was called up by England under-21’s and have now had to pay £250k for his senior call-up.
The defender was drafted in by Gareth Southgate after his impressive displays for Liverpool this season.
Gomez has already racked up 12 appearances for Liverpool this season and stood out in the Champions League for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
The report also claims that Liverpool believe Gomez has the potential to become one of the best defenders in Europe.
The 20-year-old is capable at right-back or in central defence.
