Liverpool fans can now know where they stand with the future of star defender Joel Matip ahead of the winter transfer window which reopens in coming weeks.

Joel Matip has been linked away from the Merseyside club following his inability to clinch a first team shirt in the Jurgen Klopp team especially with the coming of Virgil Van Dijk from Southampton.

The former Southampton defender and Joe Gomez have now won the heart of the German manager as well as building a solid partnership that has helped the Reds from conceding more goals this season.

However, Joel Matip seems to be growing more frustrated at the Anfield and will only seek a move away following claims that he is open to suitors in the nearest future.

Meanwhile, Matip had earlier stated that he needs not to bother about what his future holds at the Anfield but will keep working hard until there is a breakthrough for him.

Liverpool boss is also reluctant in letting Joel Matip leave the Anfield as he is keen to have him remain as a replacement in case of injury situations or loss of form.

The Merseyside club is not second in the Premier League table behind league leaders Manchester City.
