RB Leipzig’s 20 year old centre back is “on the list” as Liverpool explore defensive options at the end of the season.
That according to Sky Germany’s Florian Plettenberg who reports “I’ve been told that it’s not hot at this stage. No negotiations. Leipzig wants to keep him 100 %. ”
Liverpool have been linked to many centre backs in recent weeks including Gvardiol, Levi Colwill, and even most recently, Jurrien Timber.
Sky Germany also report Timber is among the list of candidates for the Reds.
The right sided centre back told Ajax Life a few weeks ago: “he would look at his options in the summer”.
Matip and Nat Phillips will leave Liverpool this summer which will leave Klopp with only Virgil Van Dijk, Ibrahima Konate and Joe Gomez.
