Gomez has established himself as an invaluable first-team player for the Anfield club this season after putting in a string of standout performances next to Virgil van Dijk.

He’s also shown his versatility by playing well at right-back too, and that’s why Klopp and the Liverpool hierarchy have decided to reward the 21-year-old with a contract that runs until the summer of 2024.
Despite his youthful age and relative inexperience, the enigmatic German coach is already certain he’s tied down one of the best defenders in the entire country:
Klopp on Gomez: "It is no exaggeration to say he is one of England’s best defenders already, but when you keep in mind he is still very young the room for further improvement and development is just so exciting."🌟

Given van Dijk is alrady undoubtedly one of the best centre-backs in Europe at the moment, could his partnership with Gomez be the backbone for Liverpool’s first English title in almost 30 years?
What do you think?
