Liverpool goalkeeper Jurgen Klopp has given Loris Karius the green light to leave over the summer according to the Aksam newspaper.
Per the source, Besiktas have been forced to seek alternative keeper targets after Napoli signed David Ospina on loan.
Karius is among the keepers on the Black Eagles shortlist. Besiktas want the shot-stopper on a loan move.
Klopp is prepared for Karius to spend a season abroad to clear his head and get his career back on track after having his confidence knocked following his performance in the Champions League final.
The article actually claims that Klopp is even prepared to sell Karius for the right price.
Karius has dropped into second place in the pecking order following the transfer of Alisson Becker.
The only caveat is that Besiktas will have to sell either Alvaro Negredo or Domagoj Vida before they can make a formal offer for Karius.
The Turkish Lira crisis hit the club hard and debt has spiraled.
The club will have to sell players in order to raise transfer revenues and slash the wage bill before they can take on another high earner like Karius.
Besiktas would be unable to sign the 25-year-old keeper on a permanent move, a temporary transfer with a loan fee is the only offer the Super Lig outfit could afford to make before the transfer window shuts on 1 September.
