Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius will undergo a medical with Union Berlin today before joining the Bundesliga side on a season-long loan, Football Insider reports.
The German has not played for the Reds since the horrendous display in the 2018 Champions League final against Real Madrid where he made a couple of blunders in a 3-1 defeat.
Karius has been training with the Reds first team over the past few weeks, but it has always been clear that Alisson Becker and Adrian are the first and second-choice goalkeepers under manager Jurgen Klopp.
As per Football Insider, the Premier League holders were initially hoping to recoup the £4.5m fee paid to Mainz for Karius more than four years ago, but that has not been possible.
Hence, they have decided to loan him out for the 2020/21 campaign and it is reported that he will have a medical with Union Berlin, who have had a ‘significant loan bid’ accepted for his services.
Karius built his reputation as a top-class shot-stopper during a five-year stint with Mainz and he now has the opportunity to revive his career with the return to the German top-flight with Urs Fischer’s side.
