Another potential outgoing could be on the cards for Liverpool, with Joel Matip at the forefront of the attention.
The centre-back has reportedly attracted interest from Paris Saint-Germain who are looking to pursue a move for his signature this summer. That’s according to @Jordan_MChoco (relayed via @LFCTransferRoom), who claims manager Thomas Tuchel and sporting director Leonardo are admirers of Matip.
Should Liverpool keep or sell Joel Matip?
The Cameroon international has been with the Merseyside outfit since 2016, after he joined on a free transfer from Schalke 04 (via BBC Sport). Matip has participated in some huge games for the Reds, including the winning side that took on Tottenham Hotspur last season in the Champions League final.
However, despite his influence on the team, he is often left on the bench in favour of Joe Gomez. Matip also has a history of injury problems, missing 20 matches this season through a knee problem (via Transfermarkt).
Many Liverpool fans are fully against cashing in on the 28-year-old and have taken to Twitter to express this. One supporter has tweeted ‘they cannot have him’, whilst similarly another has firmly stated Matip is ‘not for sale’.

Swap for Mbappe, then we’ve got a deal

Never !! Van den Berg is not good enough yet, Nat Philips is decent but a risky third choice in comparison to Matip. I know his injury record is terrible, but can’t let him go without equal or better replacement

Matip is NOT for Sell so PSG can look elsewhere

Let’s not even bother suggesting this anything but fiction. It would be like throwing a way a role in the Shawshank Redemption for a chance to appear on Tenable.

He is not for sale. No chance Klopp is selling Joel.
