Liverpool have one of the best starting elevens in world football, winners of the 2019-20 Premier League and 2019 Champions League. However, at times squad depth has been a cause for concern, and fullback in particular has been an ongoing worry.
That worry appears solved with the emergence of young Neco Williams on the right and now the arrival of Kostas Tsimikas on the left, with the 24-year-old Greek international reportedly having arrived on Merseyside to undergo his medical.
According to multiple reports, Tsimikas flew into England late on Sunday night and will today take the final steps to becoming a Liverpool player, which according to The Guardian will include putting pen to paper on a four-year, £50k per week deal.
Liverpool moved quickly to sign Tsimikas for £11.75M from Olympiacos after their approach for Norwich’s Jamal Lewis and initial £10M offer for the promising Northern Ireland man was met with demands they pay £20M by the relegated English side.
With Tsimikas’ signing all but officially completed, the Reds are expected to move to their two other offseason priorities: signing a veteran to centre half to replace Dejan Lovren and a promising young attacker to ease into the front three.
