Loris Karius could be on his way back to Liverpool according to a fresh report.
The much-maligned gloveman is currently in the second year of a loan deal at Turkish club Besiktas.
The move has been anything but smooth with the German making a number of errors which were noticeable in his time at the Reds.
Besiktas have had a very poor start to the season currently sitting eighth on the Superlig table with nine points from as many games although they are unbeaten in their last three league games
The disappointing start to the season by the Turkish giants has extended to the Europa League where they are yet to take a point in Group K from three games.
Naturally the powers-that-be are not happy with the current situation and a report in the Mirror (via Takvim) says that Karius could be sent back to the Reds.
Karius has been at his inconsistent best in the new campaign conceding 16 goals in 11 games, but has kept a clean sheet in his last three league fixtures.
The 26 year-old has always had confidence in his game and recently said he had not given up hope of continuing his Liverpool career.
“Will I play for Liverpool again? Of course it's an option and a good option to still be there.
“Maybe I'll play for them again, you never know. It's still far ahead. If it's not Liverpool, it will be another decent team, so I'm not worried about any scenario.
Karius also said he has put his Champions League nightmare behind him.
“I don't think about Kiev anymore.
“It's so long ago, nearly two seasons now. There were so many circumstances.
“I had a bad injury and nobody was talking about it. People can say what they want - it doesn't really concern me anymore.
“I am happy Liverpool won the Champions League the following year, and they have a good chance again this year, so let's see where it takes them.
“I still speak to the goalkeeping coach and some of the players."
If the keeper did return to Melwood, there is no question that he would be at back of the queue batting it out with Caoimhin Kelleher for the third string spot.
