Liverpool are close to completing the signing of Mainz goalkeeper Loris Karius after the club met the terms of the player’s release clause.

The former Germany Under-21 international will cost the Reds around £4.7 million and personal terms have been agreed.

Karuis will undergo a medical today but could miss the start of the Premier League season as he is expected to be in Germany’s squad for the Olympics.

The 22-year-old will become Jurgen Klopp’s third acquisition following the arrivals of Joel Matip and Marko Grujic from Schalke and Red Star Belgrade respectively.
