Liverpool will wait until the summer before tabling a transfer bid to sign Joel Matip from Schalke, according to reports.

The Reds have been linked with a host of players as Jurgen Klopp looks to bolster his squad during the January transfer window.

Various media outlets had suggested that Schalke defender Matip, 24, could be a January transfer target for the Merseyside outfit.

However, the Daily Mail is now reporting that Liverpool are more likely to wait until the summer before making a move for the 24-year-old, who is out of contract at the end of the season and free to talk to foreign clubs.

The Cameroon international is a product of Schalke’s youth academy and has made 240 appearances for the Bundesliga in all competitions.
