Report: Gomez to be rewarded with improved contract

Joe Gomez has certainly been one of most consistent performers for Liverpool during the first couple of months of the 2018/9 season.

 

The 21-year-old took important steps to establish himself in the back four during the last campaign playing at right-back and has taken his performances to a new level since moving to his preferred position of centre-back alongside Virgil Van Dijk at the start of this season.

 

The Gomez/Van Dijk combination is the sort of rock-solid central defence pairing that Reds fans (and we dare say Liverpool managers) have desperately wanted to see for many years.

The kind of form that Gomez has displayed has led to Liverpool chiefs wanting to secure his long-term future to the club.

 

The Mirror reports that although Gomez has over three years left on his existing deal and there is no urgency to recommit on that front, they want to reward him with substantially increased financial terms.

 

Klopp has described Gomez as the 'future of Liverpool' and wants to reward his growing brand of young talent accordingly.

 

It is hoped that the improved contract will be agreed within months and possibly sooner.

 

Klopp admitted that it hasn't always been the smoothest journey for Gomez at the club with his first two years written off by long-term injuries, but internally expectations were always high for the English international.

 

" I remember when I came in and everybody told me about him. I knew him, but not really well, and everybody told me how good he was when he came to Liverpool. 

 

Then he got the injury and he has had to fight back. It took a while, but he has shown so much determination.”

 

You want to see every player that pulls on a red shirt do well, and every fan will certainly to have their favourite.

 

However, there is bound to be a special place in your heart for someone who has been through their fair share of adversity and come out the other side a much better player.

 

Gomez certainly fits that description to a tee and the sky is certainly the limit for the young defender.

Erm...that is the full article!

 

As I understand it, Gomez is still on the contract terms he signed when he joined the club in 2015. Based on his progress, he has certainly earned himself a better deal. Just keep up the good work, Joe.

Good news, although I would be tempted to throw an extra year on at the same time.

Be surprising if we don't.

if you look at it, signing Van Dijk with Gomez learning his trade alongside the great man, has turned him into a 50 million pound player with huge potential. now making that 75 million look like peanuts. it's double bubble.

 

he could then be the future leader bringing someone else young on in the same way. centre back pairings are critical and we've got the formula in place for the future too.

Imagine being Kloppo watching this kid in training in the pre season beast everyone and everything and then listening to 

telly clappers bang on about how we need to sign a top CB to compete.

Imagine if we had another centre back near Van Dijk's quality. Shift Gomez over to right back and never concede again.

 

We've got a 21 year old who has been every bit as good as VVD this season.   Sounds  a great plan to switch him over to right back where he's never been above average (because he's a fucking centre back) and try to sign another CB as good as VVD.   What could possibly go wrong, great centre backs grow on trees these days.

The first sentence is utterly laughable. Gomez's strength is on the cover and occasionally beating a man with his speed. He doesn't dominate the air anywhere near what a top centreback would.

Good job his partner does dominate in the air so and together they've complimented each other perfectly this season.

Virgil dominates on air and ground. Despite Lovren's brainfarts, I'd rather him in there than Gomez. Wins more headers and a huge threat from attacking set pieces.

Gomez looks the absolute business at CB. Certainly for his age. Looks mediocre or worse at RB.

 

Arnold looks a really talented footballer, perhaps ideal as a wing back in a back five. But he doesn't look defensively convincing as a RB. Yet, anyway.

 

It's a shame Clyne doesn't seem to be at the races.

Clyne's always at the races...or in the pub or on the beak. Must be true because a bluenose told me.
