LIVERPOOL boss Jurgen Klopp has a king-sized headache — with bids for BOTH Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet.

Klopp will decide shortly on which of the former Kop keepers to sell after offers from Europe for the pair, relegated by Alisson’s £67million arrival.

German Karius, 25, has emerged as a shock target for Besiktas, who want him on loan for the season and that is the likeliest move.

The Turks initially asked to buy Mignolet, 30, but they could not afford the fee and wages.

So they dramatically switched to the other Anfield shot-stopper.

Klopp may let Karius go for the season in a bid to clear his head after his Champions League final horror show.

However, Mignolet is wanted by Italian giants Napoli, a move that appeals to him after being overlooked for months.

Liverpool are happy with one senior reserve behind Alisson, so either of the pair can go before the international window shuts completely at the end of August.
