Besiktas vice president Emre Kocadag has spoken to the Turkish press about Liverpool’s Loris Karius, with claims the German will travel to England to hold talks over his future at Anfield.
Karius’ loan deal with the Super Lig side will expire next summer and there’s been reports they could look to sign him on a permanent deal.
Fanatik have reported on comments made by Kocadag when asked about the Liverpool loanee: “Karius is playing very well this season. We will make the necessary moves to get him. He is a valuable player; we would like him to stay. In January, we may see some developments.”
It’s reported by Fotomac that Karius will fly to the England during the winter break to ask Liverpool to soften their stance with regards to his future.
There have been reports Besiktas could look to activate the €8m redemption clause they have on the player, but they want to pay the Merseyside club in instalments due to their financial situation.
Besiktas manager Abdullah Avci also sees him as an important member of his squad and Fotomac report the Turkish manager wants Karius to stay beyond this season.
In recent weeks the goalkeeper has been in impressive form and has been key in the Istanbul side’s climb up the Super Lig table.
