Matip's potential replacement...Interest in Crystal Palace defender Marc Guéhi from Liverpool continues Transfers

Former Cameroon defender Joel Matip, who is out through injury, has a current contract that expires in June of this year. No renewal talks have been held, and the fact that he will turn 33 in August makes it increasingly likely that he will leave Anfield at the end of the season.

Liverpool, in their pursuit of a successor, have shown interest in a variety of defenders, with a left-handed center back being a priority. Crystal Palace defender Marc Guéhi has long been reported as one of the targets, and the Daily Mail reports that the interest continues.

The 23-year-old center back, who has also made nine appearances for England, has been a regular at Selhurst Park this season. He has led the final line in 24 games so far, including Premier League and cup games.

After the frustration of not being able to find a permanent place at Chelsea, Crystal Palace has developed him into one of the best center backs in England, and he is gaining more and more recognition every year.

This summer will be his third year at the club, and it is time for him to consider stepping up to a higher team.

Will the Ivory Coast defender, who is under contract until June 2026, ever join a club that is a regular in the Champions League or Europa League…?
