The 22-year-old is currently on Merseyside to complete his £4.7million transfer having undergone his medical and an announcement is expected as early as Tuesday afternoon.

Karius, Klopp’s third signing after securing deals in January for Schalke centre-back Joel Matip and Red Star Belgrade midfielder Marko Grujic to join this summer, will provide much-needed competition for Simon Mignolet whose position as first-choice stopper has not been in question since he arrived three years ago.

Meanwhile, Liverpool will push ahead with a move for Leicester left-back Ben Chilwell, for whom they are prepared to offer £4million up front with some add-ons.

The 19-year-old had a spell at Huddersfield, coincidentally where one of Klopp’s best friends David Wagner is in charge, before returning to the King Power where he played just two FA Cup matches in January as he could not displace Christian Fuchs from the title-winning Foxes side.
