Loris Karius is reportedly facing a huge few weeks at Liverpool.

The German goalkeeper hasn’t played a competitive game for the Reds since his mistakes in a Champions League final defeat by Real Madrid three years ago.

But he’s back at Liverpool now following a couple of loans away from Merseyside and unsurprisingly, he is linked with a move away.

In July, the former Mainz stopper claimed that he could see himself moving to Spain or Italy this summer.

However, the summer transfer window shuts in less than a month and the fact that Karius remains a Liverpool player at the moment is perhaps a sign that clubs aren’t exactly beating down Michael Edwards’s door to sign him.

And The Echo has reported that Jurgen Klopp will effectively exile him from the senior squad for this coming season if the player cannot secure a move away from Anfield between now and the window closing.

Klopp has Alisson, Adrian and Caoimhin Kelleher, making Karius the fourth-choice option more or less.

The 28-year-old is out of contract next summer and failing to get a move will make it a very long and low-profile 2021-22 campaign for Karius.
