Goalkeeper Loris Karius is set for a return to Liverpool due to Besiktas being unable to finance a permanent transfer.
The German goalkeeper joined the Turkish club on a two-year loan deal in 2018 but with Liverpool seemingly disinterested in his services, they had thought that Besiktas will make his loan deal a permanent one.
That, however, could not happen since the Turkish side are struggling to stump up the £7.25 million required to keep him at the club this as reported by The Echo.
The keeper’s contract at Anfield runs out in 2021, and the Reds would look to sell him in order to get some return on the £4.7 million the investment they paid Mainzfor his services four years ago.
Besiktas have an obligation to buy Karius at the end of the loan spell if certain performance-related clauses are met, largely in relation to appearances and whether they qualify for Europe.
Karius had two serious howlers in the Champions League against Real Madrid and started his career in Turkey in a shaky fashion but recent performances for his side have improved.
Should Besiktas fail to accumulate the necessary funds, Karius would return to Liverpool at the end of the season where he will have to fight for a spot against Allison Becker and Adrian.
