19-year-old defender could leave Liverpool for Greek club

Liverpool’s Yasser Larouci is attracting interest from Greek side Olympiacos, according to Greek sports daily Sportime.

The 19-year-old ace has entered the final year of his contract with the Reds and has been linked with a move away from Anfield in the transfer window.

Newly-promoted Premier League outfit Leeds have taken a look at signing the left-back, but have yet to lodge a bid for his services.

Olympiacos are now a possible option as they hold an interest in Yasser.

They did business earlier in the market, with left-back Konstantinos Tsimikas switching from Olympiacos to the Reds for a fee in the region of £12 million.

The two sides could be in line to do business again should the Greek top flight giants decide to turn their interest in Yasser to an offer.

With the transfer market slamming shut on 5th October, Olympiacos may have to move quickly to sign the teenage full-back.

Larouci has made two senior appearances for the Anfield outfit, with both of them coming in FA Cup ties versus Everton and Shrewsbury last term.

In the meantime, The Mirror believes that goalkeeper Loris Karius is on the verge of a return to Bundesliga.

The Liverpool stopper lost his place to Alisson after their UCL defeat to Real Madrid and cut short his ensuing loan stint to Super Lig outfit Besiktas in a row over unpaid wages.

The German has now agreed a move to Union Berlin, and will still have another year left on his Anfield deal when that loan ends.
