Liverpool are set to send goalkeeper Loris Karius on loan to Bundesliga side Union Berlin, according to German outlet Kicker.
The 27-year-old, who has spent the last two seasons on loan at Besiktas, will be allowed to temporarily leave Anfield once again this term.
The stopper, on £25,000-per-week according to Spotrac, will battle with Andreas Luthe to become the Berlin club’s number one goalkeeper.
It is suggested within the report that Karius has already agreed to move to Stadion An der Alten Forsterei for the 2020/21 campaign.
During his two years at Besiktas, Karius was a regular for the Turkish Super Lig side, making a total of 67 appearances, conceding 95 goals and keeping 14 clean sheets. This record includes 10 games in the Europa League.
All of this comes after a tough period in the German international’s career, after his calamity in the Champions League final cost Jurgen Klopp’s side the trophy, when he tried to role the ball out, only for it to go in off Karim Benzema, before letting Gareth Bale’s strike from range slip through his fingers.
Union Berlin lost their opening Bundesliga match 3-1 against Augsburg, before picking up a draw against Borussia Monchangladbach.
