Liverpool have reportedly hit a dead end in their goalkeeping search.
This is because the Reds have given up on signing Roma stopper Alisson, and also view Atletico Madrid stopper Jan Oblak as too expensive.
Instead of settling or more medium priced alternatives, Klopp is reportedly content to enter next season with Karius in goal and Danny Ward backing him up, with Simon Mignolet tipped to leave.
Karius unseated Mignolet as first choice last season, before a Champions League final meltdown cost the Reds their chance of winning Europe's top trophy.
It has since emerged that he suffered a concussion in the final, and while this is mitigating factor for his errors, the big stage on which he made them makes the mistakes difficult to ignore.
The date is mid-June and there are two months left of the transfer window remaining.
It seems far too early for the Reds to give up on finding a new goalkeeper right now, and fans want to see more effort made to find a solution, instead of simply sticking with Karius again.
Here is a look at how fans reacted to the report...
Disgusted if the rumours true that @LFC are not going to buy a top class keeper?— Tom (@TomDS1986) June 12, 2018
Why is this an obvious blind spot for us season after season, while the likes of Uniged have a top classs keeper who they would be up a creek without. #LFC
Plenty of time left, but looks bleak!
1.94 Billion pound club... BILLION... Yet we can’t cough up on a world class goalkeeper that’ll win us a load of points next season and beyond. Gone are the days of your 25m-30m signing of a class player. We need to be going for the cream!! #LFC— Irish Reds (@LFCIrishFanzone) June 12, 2018
Won’t win anything without a quality keeper no matter who we got up front/midfield #LFC— Dylan Curtis (@dylan_curtis1) June 12, 2018
I’m just guna relax and enjoy the WC, cba for this transfer window already. First Fekir and now sticking with Karius with Danny Ward as back up. Fml ♂️ #LFC— RJTT (@Reece_Truepenny) June 12, 2018
Ha ha ha it’s like we expected Allison or Oblak to come cheap #lfc— James_Lynch (@VABEJA) June 12, 2018
