According to a report from the Daily Mail, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp wants to sell alleged West Ham target Loris Karius this summer.

Turkish media outlet Fanatik claimed a few months back that Hammers boss David Moyes wants to bring the German to the London Stadium.

And it seems as though the 27-year-old could now be set to depart Anfield.

The Daily Mail reckon Jurgen Klopp is desperate to recoup some cash following the big money arrivals of Thiago Alcantara and Diogo Jota. And Loris Karius is allegedly a prime candidate for the chop.

It could be argued that Karius would be a totally pointless signing for us, however. Not only do we need to prioritise other areas of the pitch, but the German stopper is about as accident-prone as they come.

 

Stats

The 26-year-old Liverpool stopper has kept 68 clean sheets in 212 combined appearances for the Reds, Mainz and Besiktas (Transfermarkt).

In 29 Premier League appearances for Liverpool, Karius has made 51 saves, 14 high claims and seven catches. He kept seven clean sheets in those outings. The German also made two errors leading to goals for the opposition (premierleague.com).

The German is very inconsistent and is far from reliable. In truth, that is actually being rather polite.

West Ham don’t need Karius. We have plenty of able bodied competition in the goalkeeping department.

And Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp might just struggle to move the 27-year-old on from Anfield for any kind of fee this summer.
