West Ham plan bid for Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius

West Ham United are being linked with Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius.

Voetbal24 says West Ham are among the clubs said to be interested in signing Karius for a cut-price fee of just £4.5m.

The German goalkeeper is best remembered for all the wrong reasons after he made two huge blunders in the 2018 Champions League final as the Reds lost 3-1 to Real Madrid.

After that match he was sent on loan to Turkish side Besiktas and he has been there ever since, making 54 appearances in the Super Lig.

But Besiktas are not interested in signing Karius for the long-term due to his mixed form in Turkey. Besiktas are not willing to pay the £7.25m that it would require to make the move permanent.

Instead, Hammers boss David Moyes is said to be considering a move for Karius.
