The German stopper is being given the chance to exit Anfield following his nightmare end to last season, which saw him make a couple of high-profile blunders in the Champions League final loss to Real Madrid.
Besiktas have been strongly tipped to move for the former Mainz 05 keeper, and The Mirror suggests that a deal has now been struck between the Super Lig side and Liverpool.
As part of the initial loan deal, which could be made permanent in 2020, the Reds will supposedly receive a £2.25m upfront fee.
Karius will pen a new deal at Anfield before departing for Turkey to ensure that the Merseysiders do not lose him on a free contract.
