Liverpool to bid for Joel Matip

German media outlet Bild understands that Liverpool are ready to step up their interest in Schalke hotshot Joel Matip.

The Reds have had their share of defensive problems this season, with the 3-0 loss to Watford at the weekend placing extra pressure on manager Jurgen Klopp to reinforce his back line.

With both Dejan Lovren and Mamadou Sakho pretty disappointing of late, the German coach is desperate to sign a high-quality centre-back in the January window.

The latest reports suggest that Klopp are ready to make a move on Schalke’s Joel Matip, whose contract at Veltins Arena is due to expire in the summer.

Having rejected a four-year deal worth €4 million per campaign, the Cameroon star is probably eager to hear what the Reds have to offer, especially since he dreams about playing in English Premier League.

Following the shock defeat to Watford, Liverpool sit five points adrift of Champions League positions and they are 9/4 chance to achieve a top 4 finish.
