Liverpool: Joe Gomez now expected to sign new Reds deal, talks ongoing

Liverpool: Joe Gomez now expected to sign new Reds deal, talks ongoing -Liverpool News

Liverpool defender Joe Gomez is expected to sign a new deal at Anfield this summer in a twist from previous reports suggesting he would push to leave.

The Lowdown: Gomez struggles for minutes

The Englishman has endured a frustrating season after returning from injury, failing to become a regular part of Jurgen Klopp’s plans.

In fact, Gomez only ended up making four starts in the Premier League throughout the whole of 2021/22, with Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip and Ibrahima Konate preferred at centre-back.

The 25-year-old has been linked with a move to Villa at the end of the season, and 90min even reported he would actually push for an exit to get a crack at Gareth Southgate’s England squad.

The Latest: Key twist emerges

According to The Telegraph‘s John Percy, Steven Gerrard does indeed want Gomez at Villa but the defender is likely to sign a new deal with the Reds instead.

His current contract doesn’t run out until the summer of 2024 but Klopp is seemingly keen on nailing down his future beyond that date.

Talks have been opened already about a new deal.

The Verdict: Ideal squad player

This is great news from a Liverpool perspective, with Gomez such a good option at both centre-back and right-back, having been hailed as ‘sensational’ by Klopp in the past.

If he had wanted to leave, it would have been hard to begrudge him a summer move, but it appears as though he is happy with his current status as a squad player.

At 25, he still has years ahead of him, and with Van Dijk and Matip turning 31 this summer, he may end up partnering Konate regularly one day.
