LIVERPOOL ace Joe Gomez could push for an exit from Anfield in the summer, reports suggest.
That is according to the Daily Mirror, who report that the lack of first-team football could lead Gomez to the decision to try his luck elsewhere.
The centre-back stood out in Jurgen Klopp’s defence in 2018 and even formed an impressive partnership with Virgil van Dijk.
However, a string of injuries and the arrival of Ibrahima Konate have seen him fall down the pecking order.
Van Dijk has formed a solid duo with Joel Matip at the back and Konate poses as the next option to come in if one of the other two can’t play.
The Merseysiders don’t appear keen on cashing in on the 24-year-old any time soon.
However, Gomez could be looking for something more than just a supporting role and is keen on more England caps.
Gomez joined Liverpool in 2015 but has been plagued by injury in recent years.
The defender has only managed a total of 14 appearances throughout this season.
He has also amassed four assists in 135 games across all competitions in the last seven years.
