This summer we will likely see some deadwood shifted from the Liverpool wage budget. The Reds will be wanting to add some depth to key areas of the squad but won’t be able to do so without making some sales first. According to Goal Liverpool could be set to sell Loris Karius, the Reds could be making a big mistake.
Kiev killed career
When Karius joined the Reds in a £4.7m deal in 2016 he was just 23-years-old.
In goalkeeping years this puts him in his infancy, or maybe makes him a toddler at most.
He quickly showed that he had all the potential to become the Reds’ number one for years to come, regularly pulling off game winning stops. However, he was also prone to significant errors.
In the Champions League final in Kiev too many errors came in one game, handing Real Madrid the European crown.
The German shot stopper was subsequently replaced with Alisson Becker and we never looked back.
Liverpool to let Karius leave
According to Goal Liverpool have told Loris Karius that he is surplus to requirements.
The report states that Montpellier are among the clubs interested in taking the goalie off the Reds’ hands.
Having spent two years on loan at Besiktas it should come as no surprise to the player or fans that the club are keen to get rid of the keeper.
Reds making mistake?
If Liverpool can convince Loris Karius to remain as second choice keeper then we may as well keep him.
The German may not be perfect but he is certainly better than Adrian.
Karius gave us one of the worst nights of our lives in Kiev but he kept the most clean sheets in the competition that year.
Our current number two was responsible for our exit from the Champions League this year, so why shouldn’t Karius be given another shot as a deputy?
