Liverpool have confirmed the signing of goalkeeper Loris Karius, 22, from Bundesliga team Mainz for a fee thought to be around £4.7m.
The German U21 international has signed a long term deal with the club, and ready to challenge current keeper Simon Mignolet for the Number 1 jersey.
The confident goalkeeper has said “I wouldn’t make the move otherwise if I thought I was just going to sit on the bench, I want to play and I feel like I will be able to do that if I do well in training and pre-season and the pre-season games.”
Loris will now go on annual leave before joining back up with his new team mates for pre-season.
