Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will reportedly approve of allowing Loris Karius to leave the club with an initial loan move to Besiktas being touted.
The 25-year-old has endured a nightmare few months following on from his costly blunders in the Champions League final against Real Madrid in Kiev at the end of last season.
While he would have hoped to put that behind him this year, he committed additional errors in pre-season and that in turn arguably played a key role in Liverpool securing the signing of Alisson from Roma, with the Brazilian now installed as the No.1 choice for the Reds after starting in their opening Premier League game.
Coupled with Simon Mignolet’s presence at Anfield, it seems as though Liverpool would be sensible to offload one of their two back-up goalkeepers, and now according to The Mirror, it could be Karius who leaves as he’s said to be in talks over a loan move to Besiktas which could turn permanent at the end of the season with the Turkish transfer window still open until August 31.
Further, it’s even suggested that Klopp won’t stand in the way of an exit, as it seems like the best solution for his goalkeeper in order for him to get a fresh start, take a step away from the scrutiny and spotlight at Liverpool and begin to rebuild his career after a difficult period.
As for the Merseyside giants, with Alisson and Mignolet still available they seem well equipped in that department moving forward and so allowing Karius to leave will certainly not leave them short.
With that in mind, an exit for the German shot-stopper seems like the most sensible decision for all parties, as especially after Alisson’s arrival, he has dropped down the pecking order and may not get the chance to put right his mistakes from last season.
