Loris Karius hints Liverpool nightmare may soon be over with transfer update
Forgotten man Loris Karius knows he has no future at Liverpool – and he is desperately trying to secure one in his homeland of Germany.
The Reds flop is on loan at Union Berlin this season but can barely get a game even for the Bundesliga side.
Karius has figured between the sticks just four times this term in Germany’s top flight.
With his contract at Liverpool running until 2022, it means he still needs to find a solution for next season.
The 27-year-old, who joined the Reds from Mainz way back in 2016, has not spent any real time in Merseyside since 2018 after his two howlers in the Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid.
Karius has never truly recovered from that career-defining night, spending the following two years at Besiktas on loan.
A one-year extension was added to his Liverpool contract when Karius left for Turkey a little under three years ago.
And speaking to German newspaper BILD over his future, Karius said: “I still have a contract with Liverpool FC until 2022.
“But of course, I can imagine staying in Berlin if everything fits. I’m not just passing through here.
“The mentality of the people and the spirit of the team are good for me. I’m basically a down-to-earth guy. Even though I drive an expensive car.”
While Alisson has had a shaky period of form in goal for Jurgen Klopp’s side, he has certainly proven himself to be a long-term solution as their No.1.
