Liverpool in talks with star player over new contract


It has been reported that Merseyside outfit Liverpool are in talks with defender Joel Matip whose contract is set to expire in the coming season.

Joel Matip has been able to establish himself in the manager Jurgen Klopp team after Joe Gomez suffered an injury. He has been able to form another perfect partnership with Virgil Van Dijk since hand the opportunity.

This is the reason why the club is seeking to tie him down for more years as they will hope he gives more to the team.

Jurgen Klopp has earlier hinted that he would not be allowing any if how player leave the club in the coming summer transfer window as he hopes to have his team together in the coming season so that his team can win big.

However, the Cameroonian signed a four-year contract when he joined on a free transfer from Schalke in the summer of 2016 and will have the next one year to be able to have his future sorted out.

There is no doubt that the Reds team will do all it takes to land Joel Matip a new deal as he has already given the hint of his willingness to remain at the club ahead of the season.
