According to the results of our recent poll, 64 per cent of Sunderland fans think that attacking midfielder Lynden Gooch is worth over £6m, with the majority believing that he should be valued between £6m-£9m.
The 23-year-old is an extremely gifted player and he has been in fine form so far this season for new manager Jack Ross. However, his current contract is set to expire at the end of this campaign and with him being such a valuable player the Black Cats will need to ensure they don’t lose him on the cheap in January, or perhaps worse, on a free transfer in the summer.
Gooch can play on either wing and would be an asset for most clubs in the English Football League, so Sunderland must tie him down to a new deal. Having come through the club’s academy, Gooch has now managed well over half-a-century of games for the first-team, and has also picked up four international caps for the USA.
In our poll, 31 per cent of fans felt that he should be worth between £6m-£9m, 22 per cent said between £9m-£12m and 11 per cent thought he should be valued at over £12m. Check out the full results below.
