Liverpool Opinion: Three Premier League clubs for Loris Karius
It’s been an incredible downfall for Loris Karius. From playing in a Champions League final with Liverpool to not being paid (h/t Telegraph) by Turkish side Besiktas.
The 25-year-old was in incredible form before a disastrous Champions League final at the end of last season, which was succeeded by Alisson Becker’s arrival and Karius’s subsequent departure.
Since then, the German has been accused of issues with attitude and form, even being chastised by his fans (Liverpool Echo). However, despite all that, the 25-year-old has played in every Super Lig game, barring one. He also played five out of their six Europa League fixtures. His struggles have been evident but Karius’ abilities cannot be denied, with the German making crucial saves in a 2-0 win over Bursaspor.
That said, a return to the Premier League is still within the cards, as the 25-year-old is only on a two-year loan spell. But if he does meet certain performance criteria, the deal can be made permanent (h/t Liverpool Echo).
With that in mind, here are 3 Premier League clubs that would surely benefit from his presence.

Hammers boss Manuel Pellegrini has used Fabianski as his first-choice Premier League goal-keeper, with Adrian playing cup competitions. The 32-year-old has five appearances to his name, with three in the EFL Cup and two in the FA Cup.
To make things worse, his contract is expiring in the summer and this does represent a big problem. However, that won’t be the case if they add Loris Karius. The 25-year-old has Premier League experience and that’s something Pellegrini looks for in his shot-stoppers.
Add that to the fact that the German is much younger than both Adrian and Fabianski, making him a great option.
A stunning return to the Premier League and Wolves are on par to finish in a Europa League spot. This marks an incredible rise but given the
But that doesn’t mean that the club can’t use reinforcements, with their goalkeepers past the age of 30. Both Patricio and John Ruddy are 31 and 32 respectively, which is a problem for a club that has a youthful core. While the Portuguese star has been in excellent form, Ruddy has deteriorated since his time in the Championship.

That’s why bringing Loris Karius back to the Premier League would be the best move for the Molineux side. Not only will they get a highly experienced goalkeeper, but Karius, for all his faults, is an excellent shot-stopper.
