Report: Liverpool's Loris Karius could be offered Olympiakos escape

Jurgen Klopp, Manager of Liverpool speaks to the media during a Liverpool Press Conference at Melwood Training Ground on February 18, 2019 in Liverpool, England.

Loris Karius may never play another Premier League game for Liverpool and is enduring a nightmare on loan at Besiktas.

Loris Karius of Liverpool looks on during the UEFA Champions League final between Real Madrid and Liverpool on May 26, 2018 in Kiev, Ukraine.

Liverpool flop Loris Karius could be on his way to Olympiakos at the end of the season, according to Hurriyet.

A £4.7 million signing from Bundesliga outfit Mainz in 2016 (BBC), the German goalkeeper will go down in history at Anfield for all the wrong reasons.

He made those two horror mistakes in the Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid last May and such a performance is not quickly forgotten.


Karius’s struggles have continued since he joined Besiktas on loan, with manager Senol Gunes slamming his performances in brutal fashion after he made another mistake in a 3-2 win against Konyaspor, as reported by Sky Sports.

The Liverpool Echo reports that Besiktas have an option to sign Karius permanently for £9.5 million, but it seems unlikely they will seize the opportunity as things stand.

And Hurriyet believes that Karius could be offered an escape route by Olympiakos. The president of the Greek giants, Evangelos Marinakis, reportedly has a good relationship with his Besiktas counterpart Fikret Orman.

Either way, it seems that Karius has played his last game for Liverpool.
