Report: Liverpool reject two bids for defender from two European clubs

Liverpool have reportedly rejected two bids for defender Kostas Tsimikas, according to TEAMtalk.

The Reds signed the Greece international last summer from Olympiakos for a reported £11.75million fee.

However, things haven’t quite gone to plan for Tsimikas at Anfield thus far.

The 24-year-old has made just four appearances for Liverpool, and yet hasn’t featured in the Premier League.

TEAMtalk reports that, due to his lack of game time, two of Greece’s biggest teams have sensed an opportunity and tried to make a move.

The outlet claims that Olympiakos have approached the Reds for their former player, as have Panathinaikos.

 

However, Liverpool are believed to have rejected their approaches as they want to keep the player at Anfield.

TBR View:

While Tsimikas may have endured a tough start to his time at Liverpool, it’s worth remembering he’s had to deal with injuries.

He had a thigh problem at the start of the season, while a knee injury ruled him out for much of December and January.

In addition, Tsimikas was signed to provide cover for Andrew Robertson, so he was never going to get that much game time in the league.

Admittedly, zero minutes is concerning, but he’s bound to get a break soon enough, particularly with the Scot having suffered a downturn in form.
