German goalkeeper Loris Karius is all set to finalise his transfer to Liverpool.
The 22 year old Mainz keeper was linked with a move away from Bundesliga over the last few weeks and now the reliable Paul Joyce from Express is reporting that the player is already in UK for his Liverpool medical.
It seems that Jurgen Klopp has managed to convince the young keeper to join him at Anfield.
Liverpool’s need for a keeper is no secret. The Reds have often been undone by Mignolet’s error prone performances over the last two seasons and Karius is expected to replace the Belgian as Liverpool’s first choice keeper.
Karius is Klopp’s third Liverpool signing after Marko Grujic and Joel Matip.
The player has arrived on Merseyside and will today undergo a medical ahead of sealing a £4.7m move from Mainz.
Considering his age and talent, that is fantastic business from Liverpool. Karius is one of the most talented young German players and could be a major asset for Liverpool if they can develop him well.
The report from Express also adds that Klopp is trying to complete a deal for Bayern Munich star Mario Gotze and the Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Mahmoud Dahoud. Leicester City left back Ben Chilwell is a target for Liverpool as well.
