Liverpool monitor Barca center back as Steven Gerrard eyes Joe Gomez move to Aston Villa.
Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp finds himself in a strong position when it comes to his central defensive ranks, After the defensive erros of last season
Virgil van Dijk who was injured is now back in consistent form, while jurgen klopp is currently managing Joel Matip’s fitness with Ibrahima Konate used as alternative with Joe Gomez and Nat Phillips available too.
Gomez has been sidelined with a calf injury, there has been a real defensive strength in Liverpool’s back line, with 12 clean sheets from 20 games so far which is a good result for the reds, although the Liverpool defensive line could see some changes in January.
However, according to ESPN, Liverpool and Man United are both “monitoring” Barcelona centre-back Ronald Araujo, with the Spanish club likely to face difficulty in tying him down to a new contract.
The 22-year-old Uruguayan, who has started in eight of his 14 appearances this campaign, is currently contracted till 2023, but his wage demands and the financial issues at the Nou Camp have led to “concern.”
“Liverpool and Manchester United possess the financial might to beat what Barcelona can afford if they decide to push forward on their interest,” ESPN journalists claim.
“Sources added that Liverpool are particularly keen on Araujo and scouts have watched him throughout 2021.”
It stands to reason that scouts will be tracking players of Araujo’s potential, though that is no indication a move is in the offering.
However, with the Mirror producing a rumour on Sunday regarding Aston Villa’s interest in a loan move for Gomez, fans may well put two and two together.
Although It is claimed that Steven Gerrard is hopeful a deal could be struck to bring Gomez to Villa Park in the January transfer window.
But Gomez remains a valuable player for Klopp and Liverpool, while the manager recently said: “The last thing I’m thinking about is who could go on loan in the winter.”
