JOE GOMEZ’S second cousin is on course to become the next Jamie Vardy.
Enfield Town striker Muhammadu Faal – whose father is the cousin of the Liverpool and England star’s father Augustus – is being eyed up by several Premier League sides.
Faal has scored 18 goals in 19 games so far this campaign – as well as bagging nine assists.

It really would be a Vardy-esque rise through the ranks for the young forward.
Faal began his career in Italy with Serie C side L’Aquila as an 18-year-old, making five senior appearances.
He then enjoyed a series of free transfers to non-league sides Dulwich Hamlet, Kingstonian FC and then Enfield.
