The Mirror reports that Loris Karius has arrived at Anfield, and that he has to finish his medical examinations in order to complete his £4.7 million move.
Liverpool has been chasing the promising Mainz goalkeeper for weeks, and they finally decided to activate the buy-out clause in his contract. Klopp’s side was having a lot of problems with goalkeepers this last season, with Simon Mignolet being the only one Klopp seriously counts on.
Adam Bogdan was the second goalkeeper, but because of his disastrous performances, in the last few games young Danny Ward had the opportunity to stand between the posts. However, Loris Karius had 74% of shots saved, and he was the fourth best goalkeeper in the Bundesliga in 2015/16 season, which shows enough about his quality.
Simon Mignolet was inconsistent during last season, and now when he has some competition, we should expect that he is going to take his job more seriously. Klopp made the right decision by bringing another goalkeeper, because now both of them need to do their best if they want to play.
