Serie A giants Napoli are eyeing up a loan move for Liverpool left-back Kostas Tsimikas this summer, in what could be a surprise Reds exit.
The Lowdown: Tsimikas struggles at Liverpool
Tsimikas only moved to Anfield from Olympiakos last year, with Jurgen Klopp seeing him as someone who could provide ideal cover for Andy Robertson.
The Latest: Napoli eye up left-back
The Italian side see Chelsea’s Emerson Palmieri as their first-choice target, but Tsimikas is considered a more viable alternative.
Liverpool are not willing to let the 25-year-old leave, however, preferring to keep hold of him.
The Verdict: Exit makes no sense
It is pleasing to hear that Liverpool don’t want to sell Tsimikas, with his potential exit making no sense at all.
Robertson is in desperate need of having an available backup this season, having cut a tired figure at times in 2020/21, no doubt due to starting all 38 of the Reds’ Premier League games – he has since played every minute of Scotland’s Euro 2020 campaign.
If Tsimikas can avoid injury and keep himself fit, he can be a useful squad option, having hopefully settled properly at Anfield now and affording Robertson some much needed rotation.
