Karius set for shock switch as Wolves 'agree loan with Liverpool'

Loris Karius set for shock Premier League lifeline as Wolves ‘reach agreement with Liverpool’ to sign him on loan as their No 2 for next season

  • Loris Karius has spent the last two seasons on loan with Turkish side Besiktas
  • Back in the 2017-18 season, Karius had a torrid time as Liverpool’s No 1
  • But he could have a chance to rebuild his reputation with loan move to Wolves  

Loris Karius could be handed the chance to revive his career in England with a shock loan move to Wolves.

The much-maligned Liverpool goalkeeper has spent the last two seasons with Turkish side Besiktas after his nightmare in the 2018 Champions League final, where his two clangers helped Real Madrid run out 3-1 winners.

That match rounded off a patchy season at Anfield for the German, who never looked assured when Jurgen Klopp handed him the chance to make the No 1 jersey his own over Simon Mignolet.

Now, according to Turkish publication Fanatik, Wolves have been in talks with Liverpool over a swoop for Karius. 

He would arrive at Molineaux as the No 2, behind first-choice Rui Patricio but with Wolves potentially playing in four competitions next season, it is likely the German would get enough of a crack in the first team.

Fanatik adds that the 26-year-old, who still endured a few humiliating errors in Turkey, now has the decision in his own hands as to where his future lies.

Back at Anfield, where Karius is contracted until 2022, it seems unlikely that he would have a chance of making the first-team again.

Alisson Becker is the authoritative choice as No 1, although Adrian has flattered to deceive as back-up despite an encouraging start.

Earlier in April, Karius revealed he maintain regular contact with Liverpool manager Klopp.

‘At the moment I’m just concentrating on the season at Besiktas,’ Karius said. ‘It’s far too early to say anything about the summer, especially at the moment with no one knowing what exactly will happen because of coronavirus.

‘I mainly message the goalkeeping coach John Achterberg – almost every week. He’s my first point of contact.

‘But now and then I also message Jurgen Klopp, I’m in touch with everyone. I’ve never been out of it.’
