It’s fair to say that Loris Karius has become somewhat of a peripheral figure at Liverpool since the Champions League final in 2018.
A horror-show performance against Real Madrid still stands as the most recent competitive fixture, the German goalkeeper was seen between the sticks for Liverpool.
A two-year loan spell with Turkish outlet Besiktas was recently cut short forcing Karius to return back to the Reds sooner than expected and a future on Merseyside still remains ambiguous.
And according to The Daily Mail, Ligue 1 side Montpellier could be ready to launch a £6 million bid for the former Mainz shot-stopper.
Liverpool could be made to accept and cash-in considering they themselves paid £4.25 million (BBC) to land the 27-year-old back in 2016.
Is there a future at Liverpool for Karius
If there is one thing that Karius’ Anfield tenure hasn’t been short of over it is controversy.
Whether or not he will be given an opportunity to stake his claim in Klopp’s squad remains to be seen.
Nonetheless, there has been a mixed response to the news that Karius could be leaving the club on a permanent basis.
