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.

Muhammadu Faal has been on fire for Enfield Town this season and is now being eyed by Prem sides

SunSport understands Norwich, Watford, Crystal Palace, Bournemouth and Sheffield United have all taken an interest in the 22-year-old after impressing in the seventh tier of English football.

Faal has scored 18 goals in 19 games so far this campaign – as well as bagging nine assists.

And if he continues to fire in the goals, it will not be long before he joins relative Gomez – born just two months apart – in the top flight.


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.
