'I would be surprised' - Klopp expects Gomez to miss rest of season as Liverpool boss targets centre-back signing

 The 23-year-old has not featured since damaging his knee in November, with the Reds manager admitting he is still 'far away' from a return

Jurgen Klopp has admitted it would be a surprise if Joe Gomez can play again this season, as the Liverpool boss looks to make a late January signing to alleviate the club’s defensive crisis.

Gomez has not featured since suffering a serious knee injury during a training session with England back in November, with Klopp revealing on Friday that the 23-year-old was still “far away” from a return to action.

“Joe Gomez is actually in a pretty good place, but far away from being back,” Klopp told reporters. “So he walks round, looks completely normal, is not yet out on the pitch running, or even out of the gym. It’s just a really tough injury as well.
