Liverpool given major transfer boost with Hertha Berlin hoping to sign flop goalkeeper Loris Karius – The Sun

LIVERPOOL received a major transfer boost… as another club actually want to sign Loris Karius.

The calamity goalkeeper, 26, has not played a competitive game for the club since his Champions League nightmare two years ago.

His double howler, first rolling the ball into Karim Benzema and then dropping Gareth Bale's long-range strike into the net, gifted Real Madrid a hat-trick of European triumphs.

And it spelled the end of his Kop career in an instant.

Alisson was signed for a then-world-record fee that summer as Liverpool shipped Karius out on a two-year loan deal.

But after he ripped up his contract after a fallout with the club at the beginning of May, the German would technically be on course to return to Anfield, where he still has two years to run on his contract.

Jurgen Klopp, though, wants Karius nowhere near his near-faultless Reds team.

And it is understood he has not asked the goalkeeper to return to training with the rest of the squad.

So the Reds boss will no doubt be licking his lips as Goal report stating Hertha Berlin are interested in signing Karius when the transfer window reopens.

The mid-table Bundesliga side have enjoyed a successful restart to the league season.

They beat Hoffenheim 3-0 away and then followed that up with a thumping 4-0 home victory over city rivals Union Berlin.

Veteran Norwegian goalkeeper Rune Jarstein is the first-choice stopper but, aged 35, the club will be looking for a replacement.

Wolves and West Ham have also been linked for cut-price transfers for Karius this summer as back up to Rui Patricio and Lukasz Fabianski respectively.
