Liverpool goalkeeper had chance to sign for Basel

Liverpool had a proposal on the table from the Swiss star Basel in the summer for goalkeeper Loris Karius, but the German star failed to agree on personal terms with an interested club, according to The Athletic.

Loris has a year left on his deal and has little to no opportunity of playing senior team football at Anfield this term.

He had a bad loan stint at Union Berlin last campaign and the club were interested in finding a solution for him in the summer transfer window.

There were plenty of offers for him who didn’t fail to make an impression during his loan spells in Germany and Turkey in the last three years, but there was a concrete offer on Liverpool’s table for the player.

It has been stated that Basel made a concrete offer to take the former Mainz man to Switzerland in the last transfer market.

Liverpool were said to be ready to accept the offer, but Karius failed to agree to personal terms with Basel.

With no total agreement between the club and the shot-stopper, Liverpool were forced to keep Loris on their books.

He has been training with the Reds’ goalkeeping coach John Achterberg but has little chance of being in the senior team.

Loris will have to wait until at least January to try and depart Anfield for good and end his association with the club.
