The 20-year-old was not part of the squad for Liverpool's last two matches - trips to Roma and Chelsea - and has now had a procedure performed on his injured ankle.

Despite the injury, Gomez, who has played 31 times for Liverpool in all competitions this season, was able to play through the pain and start the Reds' Premier League fixtures against West Brom and Stoke City.

Gomez played 90 minutes at centre-back in the Three Lions' 0-0 draw with Brazil in November, and also played 45 minutes in the goalless stalemate with Germany.

UEFA has announced that Milorad Mazic will referee the Champions League final between Real Madrid and Liverpool in Kiev later this month.

Gomez is also out of England's World Cup campaign, which begins on 18 June against Tunisia.
