Gomez tipped to renew deal
Joe Gomez has been backed to agree fresh terms at Anfield by one pundit.
Former Premier League striker Noel Whelan reckons that the 24-year-old, currently sidelined with yet another injury, will soon sit down with Klopp to discuss his future.
Gomez has a deal running until June 2024 but thanks to the England international’s lack of playing time, Whelan expects the conversation about his next step to come sooner rather than later.
