Does Loris Karius have a role to play for Liverpool next season?

Liverpool are apparently considering selling goalkeeper Simon Mignolet this summer.

According to DH, the Reds are ready to entertain offers for the Belgian, who joined the club for £9 million from Sunderland in 2013 (BBC Sport).

Mignolet has played second fiddle to Alisson this season, making just one FA Cup appearance so far this term.

The Brendan Rodgers signing has two years left to run on his current contract, meaning this summer would be a good time to try and recoup some of their initial outlay on him.

With Mignolet being considered for an exit, perhaps there could be an unlikely role at the club next season for Loris Karius.

 

TBR’s view

German stopper Karius has spent the current season on loan at Turkish club Besiktas, where he has made 29 appearances so far.

It’s been an up-and-down stint for the former Mainz goalkeeper, but reports about Mignolet may mean he does still have a future at Anfield as a number two.

Karius, of course, has had some rebuilding to do following his calamitous showing in the Champions League final against Real Madrid last season where he gifted two goals.

Unlike Mignolet though, Karius is still a very young for a goalkeeper and his tough experience in Turkey can only have improved him as both a player and person.

His form of late has picked up a fair bit and he was outstanding against Istanbul Basaksehir on Saturday.
