The defender is strongly linked with a move to Anfield
According to reports, Schalke centre-half Joel Matip will be offered a big money deal to complete a move to Liverpool this month.
The Cameroon international is out of contract at the Bundesliga club in the summer, and he was set to sign a pre-contract agreement that would bring him to Merseyside when his expiry date came round.
However, footballinsider247 claim that the Reds’ boss Jurgen Klopp wants to bring Matip to Anfield as soon as possible and that an approach has been made for the 24-year old.
“Are we interested in Sane and Matip? They are Schalke players, right? It is correct that we are looking at all options,” said Klopp when he spoke to German newspaper Bild.
Matip would be Klopp’s third signing of this current January transfer window, after bringing in Marko Grujic from Red Star Belgrade and Steven Caulker on loan from Queens Park Rangers.
