Loris Karius could still leave Liverpool before the end of the month as he looks to overcome the toughest stage of his playing career.
The German has slipped down the pecking order at Anfield this summer following the £67million signing of Alisson from Roma.
His nightmare Champions League final against Real Madrid back in May kickstarted a troublesome few months as Karius subsequently struggled to rediscover his form in pre-season.
Having invested heavily in recruiting a new no.1, Jurgen Klopp is now seemingly prepared to let Karius leave in search of regular first-team football.
Turkish side Besiktas are now in talks over a loan deal for Karius, according to the Mirror’s David Maddock.
A departure for Karius would almost certainly mean Simon Mignolet staying put as Liverpool’s backup goalkeeper behind Alisson.
The Belgian had been tipped to leave this summer after managing just 22 appearances across all competitions last season.
Mignolet’s agent even admitted to the need to re-evaluate his role at the club in response to Klopp spending a then world record fee on a new shot-stopper.
Napoli had looked a likely destination for the 30-year-old, but that move appeared to be ruled out when the Serie A outfit signed David Ospina on loan from Arsenal.
A spell out of the spotlight in Turkey would arguably be a wise career choice for Karius in his effort to shake off the nerves that have stemmed from his disaster night in Kiev.
