Drop in in ground Stairs with 'coved' side to bottom transition

I am having a very difficult time finding a drop in style set of steps for an inground pool. There are only s few options that I can find and none of them appear to be made to work with the significant curved transition between my walls and floor. It's probably an 18" - 24" transition! At least 12".

Anybody have this problem before? Any solution? My liner was brand new 2 years ago by the previous owner so putting a legit built in set of steps is out of the question until the liner needs replacing again.

My inground vinyl liner pool has wedding cake stairs that were probably made for an above ground pool. Maybe expand your search to include stairs for above ground pools that in in decks? That angle you are talking about may make it a little tougher though.
