Cape Town - New signing Loris Karius admits Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was central in his decision to move to Merseyside.

The goalkeeper was the Reds' first off-season signing, joining from Bundesliga side Mainz for an estimated £4.7m.

Karius revealed that Klopp's style of coaching and the atmosphere at the club are what influenced his decision to switch to the Premier League.

"He was a big factor because he is one of the best coaches in the world and has shown how well he brings young players forward," the shot-stopper told Sport Bild.

"There is also the tradition of the club, the atmosphere, which is not so common in the world. Of course, I'm financially improved with such a transfer. All in all, it was the perfect total package."

The 22-year-old is also looking to break into the German national team in the near future and believes impressing at Anfield will earn a spot in coach Joachim Low's squad.

"I just have to cause a stir and do my job very well in Liverpool," Karius said. "If I succeed, I certainly hope that at some point the call from Low comes."
