Loris Karius set for Germany return

Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius is set to leave the Merseyside club this season, with him being primed to join Bundesliga club Union Berlin on loan.


Reports are stating that an agreement between Union Berlin and Liverpool has already been reached, with personal terms being left.


Karius has spent the last two seasons on loan at Turkish club Besiktas, after his nightmare in the 2018 UEFA Champions League final performance against Real Madrid.


The 27-year-old made two crucial mistakes, allowing Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale to score that day.


Ever since then, he has been frozen out of the Liverpool squad, being sent out on loan to try and regain some confidence.


However, it did not really work out at Besiktas, with him ending up terminating his contract just before his two-year loan contract expired.


At Liverpool, both Alisson and Adrian are ahead of him, with Caoimhin Kelleher also being in the picture and probably ahead of the German in the pecking order.


As a result, a move to Union Berlin would help him greatly, so that he can possible regain some sort of form in the country where he made a name for himself whilst at Mainz 05.


Karius currently earns £25,000-a-week, and getting him off the books could allow the Reds to move in for a new recruit elsewhere on the pitch.
