Liverpool got off to the best possible start last weekend as they smashed West Ham United at Anfield, with supporters wanting more of the same on Monday night.
The Reds are a force to be reckoned with this season after strengthening in all the right areas during the summer transfer window. But, it looks as if they will wave goodbye to one of their first team members, as according to Turkish newspaper AMK Spor (via Sport Witness), Jurgen Klopp has given the green light to let Loris Karius depart.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has reportedly given the green light to let Loris Karius leave for a season-long loan deal with Besiktas.
Indeed, the German goalkeeper has been replaced by summer signing Alisson Becker and it’s believed that Turkish side Besiktas are keen to bring him in before the deadline.
And, it’s understood that Besiktas boss Senol Gunes has identified Karius as a target and Besiktas are ready to make a loan offer to sign the goalkeeper.
Liverpool will be keen to offload the German this summer in the hope that he returns next summer with a fresh mind and regular minutes under his belt.
Indeed, it was always going to be difficult for the goalkeeper to enjoy regular minutes after the Champions League performance and the signing of Alisson Becker, so it comes as no surprise that Klopp is reportedly willing to let him go this summer.
The Reds need to put their best players on the field and can’t continue to take a gamble on their goalkeepers, so this is a smart move all round.
