Report: Liverpool close in on signing of Mainz goalkeeper Loris Karius
The 22-year-old has been linked with a switch to the Premier League, with Liverpool’s Merseyside rivals Everton also thought to be interested.
According to ESPN, Liverpool are close to striking a deal after being in talks with Karius and his camp for some time.
The German signed a new deal with Mainz in January, but a release clause worth €10m (£7.9m) was inserted into the contract.
Karius spent two years at Manchester City’s academy before joining the setup at Mainz in 2011.
