Liverpool: Joe Gomez linked with shock Everton move

Liverpool: Joe Gomez linked with shock Everton move -Liverpool News

Everton are reportedly interested in signing Liverpool centre-back Joe Gomez this summer, along with a number of other Premier League clubs.

The Lowdown: Gomez struggles for minutes at Anfield

There was a time when the 24-year-old was Virgil van Dijk’s first-choice centre-back partner, but that has become a thing of the past this season.

Gomez has been limited to just one Premier League start for the Reds in the current campaign after a long injury layoff, with Joel Matip and Ibrahima Konate invariably preferred to him.

It could be that the defender sees his future elsewhere in order to earn regular playing time, and a new update certainly suggests as much.

The Latest: Everton keen on move for Gomez

Writing for Anfield Watch, journalist Graeme Bailey claimed that Everton are one of the clubs eyeing up a move for Gomez, in a transfer which would send shockwaves across Merseyside.

Tottenham, Newcastle, West Ham and Fulham are also mentioned as potential suitors, with the Liverpool defender worried that he will miss out on England’s 2022 World Cup squad if he stays put.

The Verdict: Surely he wouldn’t?

While it is becoming increasingly understandable why Gomez wants to leave Liverpool, it would be a huge surprise if he traded the Reds for neighbours and rivals Everton.

Abel Xavier was the last player to do the deed back in 2002, going the other way across Stanley Park, and it would be a decision which would likely hamper the 24-year-old’s legacy in red, so it is hard to see it happening.

The hope is that he remains at Liverpool, having been lauded as ‘sensational’ by Jurgen Klopp, with time still very much on his side and his pedigree undeniable (135 Reds appearances and five trophies). It would be hard to begrudge him a move if that’s what he wants, though.
