Liverpool's Matip ruled out for rest of season

FC Schalke 04 v Bayer 04 Leverkusen- Bundesliga

Joel Matip's injury against Tottenham last week proved to be the straw that finally broke the camel's back and forced Liverpool's owners to dive in late to the transfer market.

According to reports, the Merseyside club is in negotiations with Preston and a deal worth £2 million looks increasingly likely before the transfer window on Monday night.

'The situation is just, the season started and Joel was injured when the season started, unfortunately.

Joel Matip has remarkably become Liverpool's third senior central defender to be ruled out for the rest of the season.

Matip underwent a scan on Friday and the results were as bad as Klopp had feared when he first saw the injury sustained against Tottenham Hotspur.

The champions swooped for two signings on transfer deadline day, completing deals for Ben Davies and Ozan Kabak but the business was conducted against a background of Matip being told he had suffered a similar fate to Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez.

Either everyone is locked down - or everyone opens. "This is what unequal enforcement looks like", Gantz said on Twitter. Parliament earlier voted to double fines for lockdown violators to 10,000 shekels ($3,051).

'We will wait for him. "He has now the rest of this season, then the summer, then the pre-season to get ready again and he will be ready again".

The Liverpool manager wouldn't be drawn on the possible signing when asked about it speaking to Sky Sports after their 3-1 Premier League win over West Ham on Sunday evening. Despite their determination to stick to their long-term plan - particularly when it comes to their biggest investments - Liverpool had to act.

The Premier League champions have confirmed that Kabak will wear the number 19 shirt during his loan. Sepp van den Berg moved to Preston on loan for the rest of the season.

Schalke signed the youngster from Stuttgart in a £13m deal in 2019 and whilst the defender has endured a hard period this season he has attracted the attention of several leading clubs.

Klopp's best friend is David Wagner, who was the Schalke manager until recently and was in charge when Kabak joined the club.

The Arsenal man was himself linked with Liverpool, but that is a move that won't happen now.
