Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius is primed to join Union Berlin on loan according to reports.
That’s according to Kicker, who claim an agreement between the two clubs has been reached.
Karius has spent the past couple of years in Turkey with Besiktas, having endured a nightmare in the 2018 Champions League final against Real Madrid.
The 27-year-old famously made two mistakes against the Spanish heavyweights to allow Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale to score.
It was hoped a loan move would help him regain some confidence and form, but his time in Turkey – which ended with him terminating his contract just shy of the full two years – was up and down.
He is currently behind both Alisson and Adrian at Anfield, with young Caoimhin Kelleher also in the picture.
The formalities of his move to Union Berlin are expected to be concluded early next week.
TBR’s View – Karius’ Anfield days surely over
It looks very much like Karius’ days at Anfield are over.
There is a small section of Liverpool who actually rate £25,000-a-week star Karius (Spotrac) higher than current number two Adrian, but it doesn’t appear Jurgen Klopp feels the same way.
The club will be hoping he can have a strong season back in his homeland so that the club can perhaps recoup what they paid or even make a profit on him next summer.
