      Reported in various papers today including the Daily Mail.

      The BBC are now reporting too, so looks like very solid interest in Gomez

      Would accept a bid over £40 million since Joe is 4th choice CB now and we will have Nat and Rhys as cover.

      Imo there is no chance he will leave or Klopp will want him to leave - he along with Konate are there future

      Sell to have to buy? Makes zero sense. Him and Konate are the future.

      You don’t sell young and pacey CB’s for me, the game nowadays CB’s need to be as quick as the forwards, and we have that in Konate and Gomez, that could be a partnership for years.

      Obviously money talks and if they offered absolutely silly money then you have to think they’d accept.

      The only way Gomez goes is if he wants to leave for regular football

      A few things here. Joe's agent has no doubt been searching out interest ... its almost January isn't it. Hes 4th choice and vvd , matip and konate are going nowhere anytime soon. So the option of 1st team football, at one of the top 3 clubs in the world will no doubt be of interest to Joe.

      Klopp would not want to lose him. But if as I expect he's having to sell in order to buy and the offer is good then he may consider it. Vvd, Matip, konate and Philips isn't bad is it.

      If the interest is serious I'd be very surprised if Joe isn't wanting the move because bar the league Cup and the odd game at RB he isn't getting any football and he no doubt has national team aspirations as well

      I dont want to lose him. And jurgen should not be having to sell to generate transfer funds ... but on the flip it would be an incredible move for him.

      Where is it coming from that he is having to sell to buy 🤷‍♂️

      There have been rumblings this season that he is unhappy with his lack of playing time.

      But with Konate having jumped over him as 3rd option it wouldn't be a surprise if he is indeed unhappy. Players want to play.

      Actually this is where common sense talks and why it's so difficult for teams to have the stacked squad that many people here think we should have just because your video game console allows you to.

      Players want to play and there are only so many minutes to give to players in a season and when they are not playing they often become unhappy. With Van Dijk healthy, Matip playing well (and somehow avoiding injuries) and now Konate having jumped ahead of him, it's a hard sell to tell Joe "just hang out with the U23s until 2 go down long term then you'll be a starter again" when he's as young as he is, already proven he can play at this level and (probably) has international aspirations.

      Frankly, Mr Shankly

      Joe is without doubt the best English defender around and the only one operating at a level close to world class on his day. I have no doubt that he can regain that form but it's a sad reality and gutting to see him slip down the pecking order behind Matip and Konate because of injury. It will take some effort to displace them but here's hoping he can do it. Would be gutted to see him leave. An absolutely top quality player.

      I have no doubt that Gomez whilst won’t be happy about being on the bench won’t want to leave to quickly - Konate stepped ahead because Joe was out injured , Klopp and VVD both recently stated that Gomez and Konate are the future

      They are, but CBs can play at a higher level at an older age than other positions. It could be 5+ years before they would switch places and Joe/Ibra become the starters and Virgil/Joel the backup.

      Hasn’t he got like 3 and a half years left on his contract? If so it doesn’t really matter, the club are in the driving seat, and if they think he’s worth holding on to they will, and if he’s a professional with aspirations, he’ll continue to do his best.

      Like I said, with that length left on his contract, I think it’ll have to be silly money to get our attention, we won’t let him go for £30-£40 million when players half his potential are going for £50 million easy.

      Given his injury record is once again not great this season then if an offer came in was good enough then it would be smart to sell. Gomez as good as he has looked at times hasn’t really proven anything yet because of the amount of time he spends injured. For the right money there are plenty of players out there just as good, with just as much potential but haven’t got the constant injuries.

      But I’d more than happily see him stay at the club, he just doesn’t come under the category of untouchable when it comes to other teams wanting to sign him. Ultimately it’s up to Gomez I think, don’t think the club would put up a massive fight to keep him if he was desperate to leave for more regular football when he isn’t injured because unfortunately for him, it’s not something we can offer him.

      IMO this summer will come down to one of either Matip or Gomez leaving and a new one coming in.

      Would bleed every penny out of whoever wants to sign him and would only sell him abroad.

      He'd have to be stupid to move to that lot. It's injuries as much as anything that've limited his chances and I see plenty of space for him to grow and contribute in the coming years as the team evolves.

      Joe is clearly out of form and low on confidence nothing like the player we saw before his injuries only one way out work harder and listen to the manager

      Was terrible. I know it was his first game bacv k after a while, but he just looked slow and old and he lost the ball with stupid turnovers at crucial times that cost us.  Lucky we got through, no thanks to Joe.

      Joey just needs games, and will get games if he stays injury free. was much better 2nd half last night with Konate next too him.

      I can see them 2 being our 1st choice CB's in a few years when VVD & Matip are playing less.

      Hope we don't sell him. Quality and pacy CB with his best years ahead of him. Can understand him being a bit pissed off at dropping down the pecking order, but if he looks at Matip's (and even Konate's ) injury record, he will get chances to climb back up.

      Meanwhile, if we sell him, we are more vulnerable to defensive injuries again (no way we should rely on Matip in particular staying fit, much though I like him).
