Premier League champions Liverpool have confirmed the signing of Olympiacos defender Kostas Tsimikas and supporters have been reacting on Twitter.
The 24-year-old made 86 appearances for the Greek outfit, helping the club to the league title during 2019/20.
The Reds have moved quickly to secure a new left-back and Olympiacos will receive £11.7 million from the sale.
It was reported earlier today by the Daily Star that the three-time international will earn £50,000-a-week during his time at Liverpool.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was interested in Jamal Lewis from Norwich (BBC) but has stepped into the European market instead.
Robertson will almost certainly remain as the first choice on the left-hand side of the back four, although Tsimikas will ensure some quality from the bench.
Following the deal being completed, supporters have taken to Twitter to give their thoughts on the deal.
The vast majority are pretty excited with the signing of a young player with lots of potential and can’t wait to see him in action.
Supporters seem happy with the addition of a left-back and seem pleased that a bit more depth is being added to the squad.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Liverpool faithful on the back of Tsimikas signing for the club.
The Greek train has arrived 💯💯💯💯🙏❤️❤️❤️

FSG at their best, this. Looks like a solid player, still room to improve and it's a good price. Can't go wrong!

Just watched a compilation of him, he fits perfectly to Klopps system and has what it takes to be a regular right away👌

I’ve been watching this lad since he first was coming through and I can honestly say, he’s quicker than Bale, reads the game better than Ashley Cole, strikes the ball like Carlos, overall he’s like Maldini on PED’s. Will be a marvellous understudy to Lord Andrew Robertson

Excellent back up for Robbo. Good crossing skills defensively good and like to dribble with a sudden burst of energy. Klopp will surely improve him.
