Loaning out Loris Karius would be the best thing for Liverpool and the goalkeeper

Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius is a loan target for Besiktas according to The Sun.

What’s the story?

The 25-year-old joined Liverpool back in 2016 and the shot-stopper has gone on to make 29 league appearances for the club as he ousted Simon Mignolet from the no.1 spot last season.

After an impressive spell, the German had a nightmare Champions League final where two howlers gifted an easy win to Real Madrid.

Following the expensive purchase of Alisson from Roma this summer, it appears Karius’ first team opportunities will be limited this season and according to the latest report, Beskitas are keen to sign him on loan.

Exactly what he needs

It’s hard to imagine the horror Karius has endured following his grave mistakes against Madrid back in May and the only way he’ll be able to put that match behind him is to get back playing regular football.

Jurgen Klopp decided to splash out on a new goalkeeper this summer meaning Karius will likely only feature in cup games as the Reds’ no.2, and a loan move away from the Premier League would give him the fresh start he needs.

For all we know, he could return to the club in a year’s time having put his demons to bed and ready to rival Alisson for the no.1 spot.
