Liverpool were busy bees during the transfer window. Although the Reds didn’t buy many players, well, they only bought one, the club did do a lot of business. Players were shipped out aplenty. According to The Telegraph, Liverpool spent all of deadline day trying to sell Loris Karius.
Unfortunate case of Karius
In 2016 Liverpool agreed a deal to sign Loris Karius from Mainz.
The German goalkeeper was to come in to replace Simon Mignolet in the Reds’ net.
At the time a promising young keeper there was plenty of optimism about our new signing.
He regularly pulled out impressive reflex stops and, for his age, was encouraging on the whole.
But there were mistakes. Plenty of them.
Though, mistakes are to be expected from a young keeper. We could tolerate them for a while.
Then came the Champions League final in Kiev, a final the German singlehandedly lost.
Alisson Becker came in just weeks later and since then Karius has been moved from pillar to post on loan moves, never really settling.
Liverpool tried to sell Loris Karius
It’s no secret that the Reds are trying to find a home for the German.
According to The Telegraph, Liverpool spent all of deadline day trying to sell Loris Karius.
He’s made 49 appearances in all competitions for Liverpool but he hasn’t played since that European Cup final.
Despite the Reds’ attempts to find him a new home there were no takers, undoubtedly because of the financial impact of the pandemic.
What RTK has to say
He just needs to be a regular starter somewhere.
Loris Karius still has plenty of time to be a good goalkeeper he just needs to settle and regain his confidence.
The German can do that but he needs a club to show some faith in him, he won’t get back in the side at Anfield any time soon.
