With Mamadou Sakho likely to receive a lengthy playing ban having failed a drugs test, Joel Matip’s signing is all the more important.

The Cameroonian has been with Schalke for 16 years, but is joining Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool on a Bosman free transfer this summer.

The 24-year-old gave Reds a sign of what’s to come with a lovely assist during Schalke’s 4-1 win over Hoffenheim at the weekend.

Matip, a central defender remember, danced through the defence and laid a goal on a plate for Schalke’s last goal! It’s this kind of fancy footwork which makes him capable of playing as a midfielder, but expect him to be used at the back for Liverpool…

Impressively, Matip has 24 career goals as well, priding himself on ability to attack offensive set-pieces with his head.
