“The best news in a long time,” “A steal” – Liverpool fans react to Loris Karius signing

Liverpool confirmed the signing of goalkeeper Loris Karius on Tuesday afternoon, and fans gave their thoughts on the transfer on social media.

The 22-year-old has officially become a Reds player, joining from Bundesliga side Mainz for £4.7million.

Karius is Jurgen Klopp‘s first signing of the summer, in a transfer window that supporters are hoping will be one of the most pivotal in the club’s recent history.

The Germany U21 international, and former Man City academy player, is expected to challenge Simon Mignolet as Liverpool’s first-choice ‘keeper, potentially usurping him in the role.

Social media predictably reacted in force with news of Karius’ transfer being complete:








Zinedine Biscan:

Welcome to Liverpool!

Sounds like we’ve landed a quality ‘keeps here, looking forward to seeing him in action. If he lives up to his reputation, pretty sure he’ll be our No.1 in no time.

Walter Sobchak:

This is the best news in a long time. At £4.7m, Karius is a steal!


Kaelan Urech:

Voted 2nd best keeper in Bundesliga! Welcome to Liverpool YNWA

Jon Benoy:

Rhys Morgan:

I hope he will Karius to glory.
