Report: West Ham now discussing trying to sign ‘elite’ Liverpool player, he wants more game time

West Ham United are weighing up a move to sign Liverpool defender Joe Gomez.

Gomez has emerged as an important player for the Reds in recent days as a result of Virgil van Dijk’s dismissal and Ibrahima Konate’s injury.

However, The Times reports that he might not be wearing a Liverpool jersey for very much longer.

They assert that Gomez is dissatisfied with being the fourth choice at Anfield, despite recent developments placing him in the starting XI. According to reports, the 26-year-old wants more playing time to reclaim his spot in England’s plans for Euro 2024.

The Hammers’ attention seems to have been aroused as a result. They are rumored to be ‘discussing’ making a bid to test Liverpool’s resolve.

West Ham weigh up Gomez bid

Joe Gomez is not for sale, to put it simply. That might have been a different story if this had happened two or even one month ago.

However, Liverpool already lacks a center-back. To sell any of their four defenders in the coming days would be a grave error.

On top of that, Gomez still has a lot to contribute, judging by his performance against Newcastle United on Sunday.

He has received harsh criticism for his decline in performance over the last two seasons. But with performances like that, it’s simple to understand why he was once considered maybe “elite.”

If Liverpool has a new signing planned, as supporters hope, they might take a bid from West Ham into consideration.According to Fabrizio Romano, Gomez is also a favorite of the Saudi side Al Ittihad. However, if either party wants to make a proposal, it would have to be a sizable one.

A move still seems unlikely even then. Gomez has always been a favorite player of Klopp’s, and he would also have to consider the fact that the English international is also his current senior right-back back-up.

So, in our opinion, West Ham is free to talk about this all they want. It’ll be a brief exchange with the Reds unless Liverpool has anything unforeseenly significant in the works.
