Jurgen Klopp has revealed hot prospect Joe Gomez has sat down with the club to open contract talks. Gomez, who has been a revelation since forcing his way into the club's first-team, is hoping to sign a deal before the New Year.

Joe Gomez has been in sharp form so far this season and is expected to agree a fresh contract at Anfield. 

“Contract things, we are famous for not talking about until there is a decision. But Joe is a very important part of the squad and it’s so nice to see,” Klopp said.

“I remember when I came in and everybody told me about him. I knew him but not really well, and everybody told me how good he was when he came to Liverpool.

“I watched the games back from before I came in, and he played mostly as a left-back, and it was good but not that you would say ‘that will change the football world’. Then he got the injury and he has had to fight back. It took a while, he is still a young fella and he still can improve."

“Now seeing him full of confidence, and being really fit. I know what they were talking about when they told me how good he was, and much more importantly how good he is.

“He has a big future here at Liverpool, no doubt about that.”
