Liverpool ‘impressed’ by defender who could be the perfect Joel Matip replacement.



Liverpool is ‘impressed’ with a defender who could replace Joel Matip perfectly.Tosin Adarabioyo, a standout for Fulham, is

reportedly being monitored by Liverpool as a possible target for the summer transfer window. When his contract expires at the conclusion of the current season, Joel Matip is scheduled to leave the Reds, leaving the club without defensive depth if no replacements are acquired.During the summer, Jurgen Klopp undertook a comprehensive midfield reshuffle with the objective of reducing the mean age of the department through the acquisition of high-caliber players. Dominik Szoboszlai, Alexis MacAllister, Wataru Endo, and Ryan Gravenberch replaced club legends such as Fabinho and Jordan Henderson with their arrivals.Liverpool have now assembled a midfield that will have a lasting and immediate influence, and the club’s headquarters have shifted its focus to other aspects of the organization. Consideration was given to bolstering the backline during the summer; however, those plans appear to have been shelved until the conclusion of the current season.


While Liverpool admires Chelsea defender Levi Colwill, he is not the only Premier League standout to have captured the attention of the Merseyside club.The Daily Mail reports that the Reds were “impressed” with Adarabioyo’s two Carabao Cup semi-final performances against them. Despite the fact that Liverpool defeated Fulham 3-2 over the course of two legs, they felt that the 26-year-old performed admirably.Liverpool have “carefully monitored Adarabioyo’s development” “for some time,” and their pursuit of the Manchester City academy graduate could intensify in the coming months.Matip, who ruptured his ACL and is declared out for the remainder of the season, has generated increasing speculation that the 32-year-old will depart the club as a free agent at the conclusion of the current campaign. Over the past two seasons, the Cameroonian international has appeared in only 23 Premier League matches for the club, as manager Jurgen Klopp has favored the defensive duo of Ibrahima Konate and Virgil van Dijk. The departure of Matip will compel Liverpool to seek an alternative center-back, and the opportunity to acquire Adarabioyo for a nominal fee may prove to be a shrewd business decision.
