Paris Saint-Germain are monitoring Liverpool centre-back Joel Matip, according to Cameroonian outlet Kick 442.

The report states that PSG manager Thomas Tuchel is interested in signing Matip to replace Thiago Silva.

Silva is set to leave PSG at the end of the 2019-20 Champions League campaign.

ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT

This is not a deal that we can see happening. Matip is an important player in Jurgen Klopp’s team.

Matip only made 13 appearances this season because of a knee injury. Matip started for Liverpool in the 2019 Champions League final against Tottenham Hotspur.

Matip helped the Reds keep a clean sheet. Liverpool won the game 2-0. Matip would not start in a Champions League final if he was not rated by Klopp.

The reality is, Matip has four years left on his current contract.

Liverpool would be able to demand quite a hefty fee because of Matip’s current contract. Matip currently has a market value of €32 million.

With that being the case, PSG might be reluctant to move in for Matip. There are too many things going against the Ligue 1 club in regards to the aforementioned deal.
