Reports suggest that on-loan Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius has pleaded with his parent club, Liverpool to cancel his contract at the end of the season so that he can join Turkish club Besiktas on a permanent basis this summer.
The German has not played a game for the Reds since his horrendous display during the 2018 Champions League final, making two crucial errors in the 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid.
He dropped the ball on Karim Benzema’ foot to open the scoring, and he also failed to handle a routine long distance shot from Gareth Bale. It resulted in manager Jürgen Klopp sending the former Mainz player on loan to Turkey for two years and spending big money on former Roma number 1 Alisson Becker.
Karius does not want a Liverpool return, as first-team action will be very hard to come by. Allison has established himself as a key figure for the Anfield club, and the signing of former West Ham keeper Adrian.
There will be few opportunities for Karius once he returns. Veteran Andy Lonergan and youngster Caoimhin Kelleher are also currently on the books at the Premier League leaders, making it basically impossible for the German to force his way into the first team.
