Liverpool accepting proposals as offer prepared for Anfield outcast

Loris Karius Liverpool TEAMtalk

Turkish club Goztepe are considering a loan offer Loris Karius, with Liverpool open to selling the goalkeeper, according to a report.

Karius has not featured for Liverpool since the 2018 Champions League final, after which he agreed a two-year loan spell with Besiktas.

Liverpool signed Alisson Becker from Roma that summer and Adrian, signed a year later, is Jurgen Klopp’s second choice.

As such, Aksam (via Sport Witness) claims Karius is unlikely to be at Anfield next season, with the Reds keen to sell him.

Previous reports claimed Hertha Berlin are interested, with first-choice stopper Rune Jarstein soon out of contract.

However, the newspaper claims Turkish Super Lig side Goztepe are now also keen and are preparing a loan offer.

Karius’ spell with Besiktas ended prematurely in May when he terminated his contract over unpaid wages.

He wrote on Instagram: “It’s a shame it comes to an end like this but you should know that I have tried everything to solve this situation without any problems.

“I was very patient for months telling the board over and over again.

“Same things happened already last year. Unfortunately they haven’t tried to solve this situational problem and even refused my suggestion to help by taking a pay cut.”


Alisson Becker Liverpool TEAMtalk

Meanwhile, Alisson has proved to be a fantastic upgrade for Klopp after Karius’ departure.

The Brazilian played a key part in helping Liverpool boast the Premier League’s best defensive record last term.

This season, however, he has had two spells out with injury, with Adrian taking his place.

A recent report claimed that Liverpool’s priority has turned to tying Alisson and his fellow stars down to new contracts.
