Liverpool’s Karius ‘lined up for Premier League return’ after Besiktas spell

West Ham are among the clubs said to be interested in signing Liverpool's Loris Karius for a cut-price fee of just £4.5m.

The German goalkeeper is best remembered for all the wrong reasons after he made two huge blunders in the 2018 Champions League final as the Reds lost 3-1 to Real Madrid.

After that match he was sent on loan to Turkish side Besiktas and he has been there ever since, making 54 appearances in the Super Lig.

But according to Voetbal Besiktas are not interested in signing Karius for the long-term due to his mixed form in Turkey.

The 26-year-old has again looked far from convincing between the sticks, and Besiktas are not willing to pay the £7.25m that it would require to make the move permanent.

Liverpool, who have arguably the best goalkeeper in the world in Alisson Becker and a capable deputy in Fabian, are desperate to sell Karius, who has no future at the club.

David Moyes is said to be considering a move for Karius, with West Ham having their fair share of goalkeeping issues this season.

After first-choice Lukasz Fabianski got injured, No.2 Roberto failed to impress, while Darren Randolph and David Martin are also not thought to be good enough, and Moyes has identified the position as a key one to strengthen.
