Some Liverpool fans react as Klopp prepares to hand Danny Ward a chance

Liverpool's Welsh goalkeeper Danny Ward attends a training session at the St Jakob-Park stadium in Basel, northern Switzerland, on May 17, 2016, on the eve of the UEFA Europa League final...

Loris Karius made another error against Tranmere Rovers, and now reports claim Jurgen Klopp is ready to give Danny Ward a chance to make his mark.

Liverpool goalkeeper Danny Ward looks on during the Barclays Premier League match between Swansea City and Liverpool at The Liberty Stadium on May 1, 2016 in Swansea, Wales.

As reported by the Liverpool Echo, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is ready to finally hand number three goalkeeper Danny Ward a chance to stake his claim in the first team.

It comes after Loris Karius made yet another error in the recent 3-2 pre-season win over Tranmere Rovers at Prenton Park, when he dropped a free-kick he should have held to allow Jonny Smith to follow up and score.

Karius has largely struggled at Anfield since transferring from Bundesliga outfit Mainz 05 in the summer of 2016, and came under fire recently for his calamitous performance in the Champions League final against Real Madrid.

But Liverpool supporters still hurting from that may now be buoyed, with the Echo reporting that Klopp is ready to hand Ward a chance between the sticks.

The Welsh stopper has been at the club since 2012 after joining from Wrexham, and has only ever made three appearances for the club, including one last season in the League Cup.

He has been out on loan three times to Morecambe, Aberdeen and Huddersfield Town but now looks set to finally get his chance at Anfield, with Simon Mignolet seemingly no longer trusted by Klopp.

Some Liverpool fans have been delighted by the news, but others, on a day where reports surfaced that the club have still no made contact over Roma stopper Alisson, are not too sure:
