So far this season, Liverpool have managed to win six and draw four of their opening 10 Premier League games of their campaign as well as remaining unbeaten in the Champions League and Carabao Cup.
With the upcoming January transfer window on the horizon, it seems as though the club have plans to get rid of one of their players that has played no part in their current season so far.
It has recently been reported by The Mirror that Liverpool will let goalkeeper Loris Karius will leave the club on a free transfer in January.
Karius, who is currently earning a weekly wage of £65k-per-week according to Salary Sport, has not made an appearance for the Reds since the 2018 Champions League final where he made two costly errors that led to Liverpool losing the match by a scoreline of 3-1 to Real Madrid.
That says to us that he has been a sizeable flop in Merseyside and has arguably been stealing a living at the club by picking up wages without playing since.
Following his howler in a major European final, the shot-stopper has had loan spells with Turkish club Besiktas and German club Union Berlin.
Karius, who has been described as “stagnant” by former Besiktas manager Senol Gunes, then went on to make 49 appearances for Klopp’s side including his calamitous appearance against Real Madrid in arguably the biggest game of his Liverpool career, keeping 22 clean sheets in the process.
We feel that if Liverpool and Klopp have an opportunity to get Karius out of the club on a permanent basis in the upcoming transfer window, they should definitely look to do so they can get his salary off their wage bill and so he can get on with his own career.
Although, with his current contract at the Merseyside club set to expire in the summer anyway, we feel that even if they don’t manage to get rid of him in January, they won’t have to wait too long for Karius to leave beyond that.
