Loris Karius has been linked with a return to the Bundesliga in recent weeks, with multiple clubs thought to be considering the Liverpool goalkeeper.
He was sent out on a two year loan to Besiktas following his difficulties in the Champions League final against Real Madrid. That loan comes to an end in the summer and it’s repeatedly stated in Turkey that Besiktas won’t look to keep the player for a longer period.
Bild today cover interest from Hertha Berlin, and they agree with the Turkish media over Karius leaving Besiktas this summer. However, their reasoning is that it’s because the stopper is taking action against the Super Lig club for unpaid wages.
According to Bild’s own information, Hertha would be considering loaning the Liverpool player for a season, making it a cut-price deal, given their financial uncertainty in the Covid-19 crisis.
Whilst Karius is listed as having a contract running until June 2021, it’s thought he extended before the Besiktas loan.
Liverpool themselves would probably prefer a permanent transfer for their player, especially given that he wouldn’t be guaranteed to be first choice at Hertha.
