Joe Gomez tipped to reject Aston Villa this summer after Liverpool latest - pundit
Joe Gomez is set to stay at Liverpool this summer despite his lack of regular game time this season.
That is the view of ex-Tottenham and England number one Paul Robinson, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the 24-year-old’s future on Merseyside.
Gomez has fallen down the pecking order this season, with Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip and Ibrahima Konate preferred at centre-half.
However, the England international has started and impressed at right-back in recent games against Newcastle United, Watford and Benfica.
As revealed by Football Insider (21 February), Aston Villa have identified Gomez as a top-priority target ahead of the summer.
His contract at Anfield runs until the end of June 2024.

When asked by Football Insider for his thoughts on Gomez’s future, Campbell said: “Gomez is proving his worth and I think they’ll keep him.
“I don’t think Liverpool will have a problem persuading players to stay either. Yes, players want to play every week but when you are competing for four trophies it is different.
“If you are in all of the cup competitions until the latter stages, most players will get 20 appearances in a season. It doesn’t matter if you’re not a regular starter. If you are a valued squad member you will play your part.
“Where would you want to go? Why would you want to leave Liverpool? They are one of if not the best team in Europe right now.”
