Liverpool ready to sell German goalkeeper in January

Liverpool want goalkeeper Loris Karius, whose deal expires at the end of the campaign, off the wage bill next month, according to The Athletic.

The same report claims that the Reds will try to sell the german in January – or at least find a buyer to take him for nothing.

He is back at Anfield this campaign but is not registered to play. He is also a distant fourth-choice in goal, behind Adrian, Caoimhin Kelleher and Alisson. In fact, the expectation was that the 28-year-old would have left by now.

The Merseysiders sent the player on a two-year loan to Besiktas three years ago, which was supposed to lead to a permanent move. Instead, the Turkish club sent him back early after a disagreement over wages.

A year with Union Berlin last term ended with Loris barely playing before returning to the Reds. There was some anticipation that one would work out – once again, though, things did not go his way.

Now, Loris will definitely depart in 2021. His deal expires in the summer but Jurgen Klopp’s side don’t really want to pay Karius’ wages until then. After all, they are not getting anything for them as he just doesn’t play.
