Pundit rules out 25-year-old Liverpool FC star moving to Chelsea FC
ESPN FC pundit Stewart Robson rules out Liverpool FC goalkeeper Loris Karius moving to Chelsea FC
Chelsea FC won’t consider a deal to sign Liverpool FC flop Loris Karius this summer, Stewart Robson has insisted.
The Reds have spent a world record fee on Alisson Becker after Liverpool FC signed the Brazil international in a £67m deal from Serie A giants AS Roma.
Alisson will replace Karius in the Liverpool FC first-team much to the relief of Reds supporters following the German’s horror performance in the Champions League final.
Karius made two mistakes in the Merseyside outfit’s 3-1 loss to La Liga giants Real Madrid to prompt relentless criticism of the 25-year-old.
Chelsea FC could lose Belgium international Thibaut Courtois to the Champions League winners this summer amid reports of an imminent £31m deal.
Asked during a question and answer segment on ESPN FC whether Chelsea FC could move to sign Karius should Courtois leave for Real Madrid, former Arsenal star Robson said:
“I’m not sure Karius will move to Chelsea. It is hard for him. I think Mignolet will be the number two and Karius will be out.”
Chelsea FC appointed former Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri as Antonio Conte’s replacement earlier this summer.
The Blues have signed Italy international Jorginho in a £57m deal from Napoli last week.
The west London outfit finished in fifth spot in the Premier League table last term to miss out on a spot in the Champions League.
