Liverpool preparing new deal to increase £50,000-a-week wages of 24-year-old star

Liverpool are reportedly readying a new contract offer for goalkeeper Loris Karius.

The former Mainz stopper initially struggled to get to grips with Premier League life, but has impressed since deposing Simon Mignolet as the Reds’ first-choice keeper at the turn of the year.

To reward the German for his upturn in form, Liverpool are prepared to increase his £50,000-a-week wages, according to The Sun.

The contract extension is not expected to be lengthy, with Karius already tied to the Reds for another three years.

Liverpool are reportedly planning to sign a new goalkeeper this summer and have been linked with Roma stopper Alisson and Stoke City’s Jack Butland, to give Karius fierce competition for first-team football.
