The Australian is currently at Belgian side Club Brugge, and the player’s representative has said that a move is unlikely this month due to his participation in the Asian Cup. Ryan is playing for Australia at the tournament.

“I have read the reports that Liverpool are watching Mat, but I am unaware of concrete interest from them. Of course it does not surprise me that such big clubs are interested in Mat because he is such an outstanding talent,” Mikkel Beck was quoted by Goal.

“We just re-signed a new contract at Brugge and Mat is very happy there and is part of an ambitious project where he feels he can progress. A move is unlikely this month as Mat is away at the Asian Cup and is fully focused on doing well for Australia.

“It is normal that there are rumours surrounding him as he is a top talent. We will sit down in the summer and talk about things and if there is something concrete and something special that comes up we will consider it.

“Playing in the Premier League would be of interest to Mat as it is one of the best leagues in the world and knowing how ambitious Mat is it is the kind of league he would like to play in. He is happy at Brugge, but if concrete interest comes we will sit down and have a discussion.”

The 22-year-old impressed with his performances for his nation at the 2014 World Cup. Since then he has been a regular in the Belgian top flight, and continued to show why a club like the Reds are interested in signing him. He has won the award for the best goalkeeper in the division for the last two years.

The Merseyside club are targeting a new ‘keeper as both Simon Mignolet and Brad Jones have looked susceptible to mistakes during this campaign. Whether or not Ryan would be the answer is unknown, as he is yet to be tested week in week out at the highest level.
