They suggest the Turkish club want the former Liverpool stopper long-term after a good start to the season and that they’ll pay €8m to get it done over four years.
Karius’s infamous spell at Liverpool seems like a very long time ago, but he actually only departed in 2018 – not long after his performance in the Champions League Final that cost us the trophy in Madrid.
Thankfully now we have Alisson, the world’s best stopper, and the very capable Adrian as his deputy.
The Spaniard arrived in the summer on a Bosman and let nobody down, winning all the Premier League games he featured in.
Fans on Twitter have been lauding Michael Edwards for negotiating the Karius deal, with some suggesting he’s an alien!
His history of selling deadwood for good money is legendary, in fairness. We’ve made profit on Jordon Ibe, Dom Solanke, Danny Ings, Kevin Stewart, Brad Smith and countless others despite them having absolutely zero chance of featuring in Jurgen Klopp’s first-team.
The man’s a genius!
Signed for €4M, sold for £8M. Michael Edwards is from Area 51. https://t.co/qKUfpCArvg

We bought Karius for £4 million and we’re now somehow selling him for £8 million, even after what happened in that Champions League final.
Michael Edwards is something else.

Can’t believe we’re doubling our money on Loris Karius, spending £4m on him, didn’t work out in 3 seasons for us, and then selling him for £8m in January after a 18 month spell to Besikas.
Michael Edwards really does deserve a statue.

Michael Edwards would sell his nan
And not only that.. He would get 5m more than she was worth

Reports coming out that Karius is gone come January for £8m. We bought the guy for £4m. I think Michael Edwards has nudes of every single sporting director in the world.
