The Lowdown: Fallen out of favour
However, the centre-back has recently fallen out of favour under Jurgen Klopp, with the likes of Joel Matip and Ibrahima Konate leapfrogging his place in the German’s pecking order.
Even though the 6 foot 1 powerhouse still has two years remaining on his contract at Anfield, The Mirror‘s Simon Mullock revealed just last week that he has become frustrated at a lack of game time, leaving his future on Merseyside up in the air.
The Latest: Campbell reacts
Reacting to the news from Mullock in a chat with Football Insider, Campbell said: “I think he will look to leave if a good offer comes in.
“The fact of the matter is, he is not playing enough football.
“It is one thing being first reserve but it is another when you are third or fourth choice. He is probably the fourth choice centre-half.
“Liverpool have also signed another right-back as well. The writing is on the wall as far as I’m concerned.
“If he has any ambition of getting to the World Cup, he needs to leave. He needs to be playing.
“The key is to go to a club where he will play regularly. Hopefully a deal can be done and he can play football. There is nothing better than playing.”
The Verdict: Regular minutes needed
When Gomez hasn’t been used in his natural position in the Liverpool starting XI, Klopp has typically placed him as cover at right-back, but with the new arrival of Calvin Ramsay as a backup option to Trent Alexander-Arnold, he’s now got even less of a chance of nailing down regular minutes.
Can Joe Gomez regain his starting spot?
As Campbell said, if Gomez has any hopes of regaining a place in Gareth Southgate’s England squad ahead of the World Cup later this year, then making the move away from Liverpool would be the best option for his career at this moment in time.
