Loris Karius has asked that Liverpool cancel his two-year loan deal with Besiktas early, according to Turkish outlet Turkiye Gazetesi.
Karius was farmed out to the Super Lig side following his terrible Champions League final performance last season.
The unusual two-year nature of the deal, as well as the big-money, hugely successful signing of Alisson has made it pretty clear that Karius has absolutely no future at Anfield.
The move, which was likely geared towards removing the 25-year-old from the spotlight and allowing him to recover his form and confidence has reportedly gone so poorly that the goalkeeper just doesn't want the loan to move into its second season.
As much as it would be easier for Liverpool to keep Karius in Turkey, they might as well just recall him to sell him at this point.
The German stopper has no future at the club but there is no real benefit to keeping him at a club where he is unhappy, settled or performing well just for the sake of it.
So Jurgen Klopp might as well grant Loris Karius his wish and hope that he can find a buyer in the summer.
