Liverpool centre-back Joe Gomez is ready to shock the club and force a move away after growing frustrated with his playing time under Jurgen Klopp.
The 22-year-old started the first Premier League match of the season but has since lost his place to the impressive Matip.
Gomez was though to be a star of the future but after suffering a serious injury he hasn’t forced himself back into the Liverpool first-team.
And 90min.com now claim the centre-back is ready to look elsewhere for opportunities.
Liverpool would be under no pressure to sell Gomez though and would demand a huge fee after watching homegrown players move for astronomical fees in recent windows.
Dejan Lovren is the fourth centre-back at Anfield and the Croatian has opened up on his future at the club as well.
“The transfer window time is now over,” said Lovren.
“I will always be here if I am needed. I am giving more than 100 per cent for this club from day one.
“There are good days and bad days but six years is quite a long time. Everything, at the moment, is fine.
“Let’s see what will happen. It was a challenge for me this summer to stay here but I gave everything in pre-season and I fought.
“There are always some new challenges, maybe, in front of you. It depends whether you accept them or not but it also depends on whether you are needed in the team or not.
“In the end I stayed and I am quite happy.”
Liverpool return to action later today when they take on Tottenham in the Premier League at Anfield (4.30pm).
