German player in Liverpool ahead of transfer

Loris Karius has arrived on Merseyside to undergo a medical ahead of finalising his £4.7m transfer from Bundesliga club Mainz.

The German goalkeeper will undergo a medical over the next 24 hours after the Reds agreed a deal with the Jurgen Klopp’s old club. His signing, though, is unlikely to be confirmed until Tuesday evening at the earliest.

The 22-year-old will provide competition for current No.1 Simon Mignolet, after catching the eye with Mainz during the past four years. Belgian international Mignolet has had a lot of criticism during his Liverpool career with regular mistakes and mishaps in goal.
