Karius endured a nightmare in the Champions League final in May, with two concussion-prompted errors gifting Real Madrid a 3-1 victory in Kyiv.
The German’s performance that night has led to widespread calls for the Reds to sign a replacement, with both Alisson and Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak touted as possibilities.
Rumoured availability of Barcelona backup stopper Jasper Cillessen has added a third candidate for supporters to mull over, but with Liverpool set to begin pre-season on Monday no signing is imminent.
According to the Telegraph‘s Chris Bascombe, Karius “has his manager’s support” but faces a challenge to lay the ghosts of the final to rest.
Roma are demanding a world-record transfer fee for the Brazilian, who is also on the radar of Real Madrid and Chelsea after his breakthrough campaign in Serie A.
Joyce adds that there is “no interest” in Cillessen, despite the Dutchman seemingly agitating for a move and claimed to be available for around £25 million.
Mignolet is likely to leave in search of regular first-team football, and while Ward and Grabara could provide Karius with competition there remain concerns over a long-standing problem position.
