Some Liverpool fans believe Joel Matip could leave the club this summer, following news of the Reds’ likely signing of Ibrahima Konate.
According to The Athletic‘s David Ornstein, the Reds are closing in on a deal for the RB Leipzig centre-back this summer, with talks believed to be at an advanced stage.
It is a potentially exciting piece of business for Liverpool, with Konate a highly-rated young defender who has impressed for the Bundesliga side.
While the youngster’s increasingly likely arrival at Anfield is good news for many, it may not be too positive for Matip with regards to his future at the club.
Matip is out for the rest of the season, at a time when Jurgen Klopp desperately needed him to stay fit, and he cannot be trusted to be available on a regular basis.

A number of Liverpool supporters have taken to Twitter to provide their thoughts on Matip’s future following the news on Konate, with several thinking that the Cameroonian’s Anfield days could be nearing an end.
“Could see Matip go“
“”I reckon it’s Konate for Matip and we still sign Kabak on a permanent”
“Selling Matip and having both Kabak and Konate is such a good long-term investment”
“We might actually sell Matip if this Konate deal is happening”
“Bye bye Davies, Matip. Kabak, VVD, Konate, Gomez next season then?”
“Matip….. IT’S TIME TO GO“
