Under Jürgen Klopp Liverpool have avoided rotation where possible. The best XI play pretty much every week. Consistency has been key to the side’s success. As a result some players struggle for game time. Reports in Italy have claimed that Napoli want to sign Kostas Tsimikas from Liverpool on loan.
Kostas Tsimikas at Liverpool
Last summer the Reds were looking for cover for Andy Robertson.
There was no natural left back in the senior side to provide depth for the Scotland captain.
The Reds initially moved for Jamal Lewis at Norwich City, the Canaries rejected a £10m bid from Michael Edwards.
Days later Liverpool signed Kostas Tsimikas from Olympiakos for £11.75m.
Since joining the Reds the Greek international’s opportunities have been limited.
He has managed just five minutes in the Premier League and three starts in all competitions.
Napoli want Kostas Tsimikas
According to reports in Italy a Serie A side could swoop for the left back.
Gazzetta Dello Sport has claimed Napoli want to sign Kostas Tsimikas.
The report states that the Italian side were in for the Greek international previously but they missed out with the Reds swooping in.
Napoli would be looking for a loan move apparently, one which the Reds are unlikely to sanction.
What RTK has to say
It isn’t in Liverpool’s interest to loan out any first team players this summer.
If you’re going, you’re going permanently. Michael Edwards needs to raise some serious cash, loans just don’t cut the mustard.
Furthermore, we’re expecting Tsimikas to play a bigger part for Liverpool in the coming season.
Injuries throughout the side held him back last term.
