It has been revealed that Loris Karius twice turned down a move from Liverpool to Basel this summer, due to problems agreeing personal terms with the Swiss club.

Karius garnered surprise as deadline day passed without finalising his Anfield exit, having spent pre-season with the first team effectively as fourth or fifth choice.

Instead, Karius is due to spend at least the next three-and-a-half months with Liverpool – though, as it stands, he is back in Berlin recovering from a shoulder injury.

The player will see his contract with Liverpool expire next summer, and if he does not agree to a move away in the January transfer will simply spend his final months earning a lucrative wage with no chance of playing.

If he hadn’t played in a Champions League final, it would be a very ordinary story in the world of football,” Biermann told The Athletic.

In short, Karius would have been required to take a pay cut to join the 20-time Swiss Super League champions, which saw both permanent and loan bids unsuccessful.

That the club were willing to allow Karius to return to Germany to nurse an ongoing problem proves his standing under Jurgen Klopp – with all avenues explored throughout the summer to find him a new club.
