Kostas Tsimikas will be allowed to leave Liverpool during the summer transfer window, according to reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano.
The Lowdown: Disappointing first season
The 25-year-old joined the Reds from Olympiakos last year, with the general consensus that he was a shrewd acquisition by Jurgen Klopp as left-back cover for Andrew Robertson.
The hope is that the Greece international will come good and provide competition for Robertson, but a bleak update has been provided regarding his future.
The Latest: Romano says Tsimikas can leave
A loan move to Napoli has been mooted, but it remains to be seen whether or not the left-back will head there.
The Verdict: Keep hold of him
While Tsimikas struggled badly in his first season at Liverpool, mainly because of injuries, it would be a shame to see him moved on so quickly.
He is yet to get a genuine opportunity to prove himself and enjoy a fully fit run in the team, so it would be nice to see him given at least one more year to prove his worth.
Should Liverpool decide to sell Tsimikas, it is essential that they sign a tailor-made replacement, ensuring that Robertson doesn’t have too much pressure on him to stay fit, or leading to James Milner needing to fill in there.
