Liverpool could be open to offers for Joel Matip during this summer's transfer window, according to a report.

Liverpool could reportedly be open to offers for Joel Matip during this summer's transfer window.

The 28-year-old was Virgil van Dijk's preferred partner at the heart of the team's defence in the early stages of the 2019-20 campaign before a knee injury curtailed his progress.

Matip has been available for selection since the early stages of 2020, although the Cameroon international has found it difficult to displace Joe Gomez in Jurgen Klopp's starting XI.

Despite the uncertainty surrounding Dejan Lovren's future, Matip could be sold ahead of the 2020-21 campaign, according to TuttoMercatoWeb.

The report claims that Liverpool's interest in Kalidou Koulibaly could see the former Schalke 04 defender relegated to 'first reserve', although an exit is 'more likely'.

Matip, who has featured on 110 occasions for the Reds in all competitions, has a contract with the European champions until the summer of 2024, having only penned an extension last October.
