Joe Gomez and memorable moments

Joe Gomez joined Liverpool in 2015 from Charlton and was considered a promising young player at the time. Despite injury problems that have hampered his career progression, Gomez has gradually become an important part of Jurgen Klopp’s squad.

 Gerrard wants to get Gomez’s signature in the summer.

In fact, Gomez partnered with Virgil van Dijk quite well in the 2019/20 season, when Liverpool won the Premier League title. But with Liverpool’s signing of Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig for £36m last summer, Gomez didn’t get to play as much as before.

This is the reason why Aston Villa coach Steven Gerrard wants to take advantage of the opportunity. In fact, he tried to sign Gomez in January but Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp didn’t want to lose his centre-back. 

However, according to Football Insider, Gerrard will try to sign Gomez again for £30m.  Football Insider adds that Gomez could leave in the summer if his playing time does not improve. On Saturday, he started at right-back in Liverpool’s 3-1 win over Norwich. It was his first Premier League game in 15 months.

Since the beginning of this season, Gomez is completely healthy but is only the fourth choice in the central position after Van Dijk, Matip, Konate.
