Matip’s absence have seen Joe Gomez form a formidable partnership with Virgil van Dijk, with the former Schalke star dropping down the pecking order at Anfield.

The Ligue 1 side are reportedly into the market for a new centre-back after confirming Thiago Silva will be departing the club this summer after the end of his contract.

PSG will battle it out with Serie A side Atalanta on Wednesday for a place in the semi-final in the new format one-game instead of the usual double header.

Cameroonian outlet Kick442 claim PSG want to splash the cash on Matip, who is seen as a replacement for the former Brazil international.

Matip joined Jurgen Klopp’s side as a free agent in 2016 after leaving the German Bundesliga side at the end of his contract with them.
