Liverpool defender Joe Gomez is believed to be “open to leaving” Anfield at the end of the season, having enjoyed almost a decade at the club.

The 26-year-old has been a Reds player for nine years, having arrived from Charlton Athletic as a highly-rated youngster back in 2015, initially coming in under Brendan Rodgers.

Since then, Gomez has become a key squad player during the Jurgen Klopp years, making 222 appearances and winning the Premier League and Champions League, among numerous other trophies, including the FA Cup and the EFL Cup.

Injuries have prevented the Englishman from playing even more, with a number of serious issues coming his way, but he has excelled this season, often at left-back, playing 49 times in all competitions.

Gomez is contracted to Liverpool until the summer of 2027, but according to journalist Sam McGuire on X, he is now considering a fresh challenge at the end of the current campaign:

“EXC: Joe Gomez is weighing up his options this summer. The versatile defender is open to leaving Liverpool.
In his article for Anfield Watch, McGuire goes on to say that “while he isn’t looking to force a move, the 26-year-old has made it known that he would like the club to listen to any reasonable offers.”
Our thoughts on Gomez leaving Liverpool…
Seeing Gomez depart Liverpool in the summer would be a shame, not least because he is now the club’s longest-serving player, which seems surprising considering he is still only 26.
The England international is also such a versatile option for the Reds, being able to thrive in either full-back position and at centre-back, and he has still has plenty of years left in him.
If Gomez decides he wants to be a definite starter elsewhere it would be hard to begrudge him a move away from Liverpool, however, and it may be that he wants a new challenge at this point in his career.
Ideally, he would stay put for at least another season, at which point he would have two years remaining on his contract, but if he does want to leave, it is important that the Merseysiders receive good money for him.
