Liverpool reportedly gives Loris Karius on a loan to Besiktas22/08/2018 09:24
With Liverpool said to be in “advanced” talks with the Turkish side Besiktas, Loris Karius is reportedly close to a two-year loan move. According to some news, the deal would also include a clause to make the move permanent. Karius move would bring an end to the transfer speculation surrounding Simon Mignolet, according to Maddock, as manager Jurgen Klopp will only sanction the departure of one goalkeeper.
With the arrival of Alisson Becker this summer, Karius has lost the status as the Reds No. 1 stopper. After Karius blundered away in the UEFA Champions League final against Real Madrid the club invested in the Brazilian. Karius made two crucial mistakes in the 3-1 loss.
The mental errors have plagued him throughout his career in Liverpool, even though he has heaps of physical talent. Many have wondered and questioned how will he recover from the UCL final loss, with some suggesting that maybe having some fresh start would be the best thing for him right now.
In the Turkish League, Besiktas stumbled to a fourth-place last year and they lack a class goalkeeper in their squad. If this move went through Karius would easily be their top option in goal and with plenty of time left before the end of the transfer window, Besiktas should find a way to convince the player.
In the final round of Europa League, the Turks will face Partizan qualifying on Thursday.
