Loris Karius is expected to return to Liverpool at the end of the season despite rumors that Besiktas have an €8m obligation to sign the Germany international on a permanent transfer.

A Besiktas source informed Turkish-Football that the Black Eagles have an option to sign Karius on a permanent deal but that it is up to the club to decide whether to pull the trigger.

The Black-Whites would struggle to pay €8m for Karius in the summer due to the financial position the club find themselves in.

Karius will therefore be returning to Liverpool following the end of his two-year loan stay unless Besiktas are able to sell players to raise the transfer funds required.

The goalkeeper has established himself as a first-choice keeper at Besiktas and the management are happy with the 26-year-old.

Karius would be unlikely to be first-choice keeper should he return to Liverpool with Alisson Becker replacing the German after his move to Besiktas.
