Kar­ius set for Turkey loan move

Irish Examiner - Sport - - SOCCER -

Liver­pool goal­keeper Loris Kar­ius is set to join Be­sik­tas on a two-year loan.

Kar­ius made two costly er­rors in the Cham­pi­ons League fi­nal in May and his An­field ca­reer looks to be over.

Turk­ish side Be­sik­tas are un­der­stood to have an op­tion to buy Kar­ius at the end of the loan.

The Ger­man, who joined the Reds from Mainz in 2016, was not in­volved in the match­day squad for the Premier League clash at Crys­tal Palace last night.

He has fallen down the peck­ing order af­ter his hor­ror show against Real Madrid in Kiev, with Brazil­ian stop­per Alis­son Becker ar­riv­ing for close to £67m (€74.5m) in the sum­mer.

Si­mon Mig­no­let, who has also been linked with a move away from the club, is now Alis­son’s only se­nior chal­lenger for the num­berone spot.

Kar­ius made 49 ap­pear­ances for Jurgen Klopp’s side in all com­pe­ti­tions.
