John Aldridge thinks that Liverpool should look to sell Joel Matip this summer.

The Reds are looking to improve the squad during the summer transfer window, and one of the main positions they are eager to strengthen is central defence.

“For me, I would look to offload Joel Matip this summer. He has been fantastic for Liverpool over the last few years, but he can’t play more than two or three games in a row without getting injured,” Aldridge said to Sunday World.

“The same problem has been there for Gomez, who is injury prone and that has to be taken into consideration when Liverpool make their decision on defensive signings this summer.

“I don’t think they can rely on Gomez and Matip to be fit for a full season, so signing Kabak would be the right way to go as they can’t leave themselves so short at the back again.”
