Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp knows about Matip from the coach's time in the Bundesliga in charge of Borussia Dortmund.

Matip, who played for Cameroon in the last two World Cup finals, has been playing professionally at Schalke since 2009.

Matip will compete with Martin Skrtel, Dejan Lovren, Mamadou Sakho, and Kolo Toure for a place in central defense. Steven Caulker, another center back, joined on loan in January.

Klopp's only other signing since joining Liverpool in October has been midfielder Marko Grujic from Red Star Belgrade.
