Matip underwent scans Monday on his injured ankle, which showed the issue is not serious, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Matip picked up the injury during Sunday's friendly against Wigan, and the news is a huge boost to the Reds, who are going to start the Premier League season without Mamadou Sakho (Achilles) and Joe Gomez (Achilles).

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Matip suffered an ankle injury during Sunday's preseason match against Wigan, but manager Jurgen Klopp does not believe it is serious.

Klopp added that he thinks Matip should be able to return to training Tuesday, giving him ample time before the start of the Premier League season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Matip provided an assist in Saturday’s 3-1 win over Hannover.

Matip not only registered his second Bundesliga assist of the season but also played well in defense, blocking one shot and making one interception, two tackles, and five clearances. He has been one of Schalke’s best defenders this season and leads the team in interceptions, clearances, and blocks per game. He will be sorely missed when he leaves Germany to join Liverpool in the summer but will surely do his best to make an impact in his last two matches at Schalke 04. His side hosts Augsburg this Saturday.

Matip is expected to join Liverpool from Schalke at the end of the season, according to Sky Sports.

Schalke is expected to announce the news Monday, and the move is expected to be a free transfer. Liverpool was connected with a transfer move for the defender in January but will secure a deal this summer instead.
