Liverpool fans would be forgiven if they were not aware that Konstantinos Tsimikas was still a Red.
Of course, the left-back has only been at Anfield since the summer of 2020 having arrived from Olympiakos after Liverpool decided to splash £11 million on him, however it would seem the Premier League outfit still need to get their money’s worth out of him.
The 25-year-old was injured in his debut season and had managed to make just seven appearances for the club. However, even when he was past those injury issues, the defender was not utilised by Jurgen Klopp all that often.
Tsimikas managed to make a further seven appearances, which did not involve a start in the Premier League whilst he was also substituted on one of the starts he made in the UEFA Champions League – their 2-0 defeat to Atalanta; a game many using Max Free Bets would have been able to earn huge rewards on if they backed it!
Despite his seeming misfit status at Liverpool, the club refused to let the Greek international to leave in January, whilst there was also some suggestion that he was prepared to fight for his place.
Offers to return to Greece are thought to have been on the table, with Olympiakos keen to reunite with him, whilst Panathinaikos wanted him, as well.
SSC Napoli were also said to be keen in January, and it seems they are ready to try their luck again this summer, according to Corriere dello Sport, via Sport Witness (via TEAMtalk).
With very little to have changed in regards to the opportunities that Klopp has provided him, there will be some doubt about whether he will be keen to remain at the club this time around, as his career has undoubtedly stalled in the last 12 months.
However, with a contract that is still scheduled to run until 2025, the Reds will be under no pressure to sell him, however they could potentially command a transfer fee that will then allow them to free up finances for a potentially big transfer.
There may also still be interest in the player in Turkey.
According to Fotomac earlier this month, he has become a target for Turkish Super Lig side Fenerbahce.
With that in mind, it would seem that Tsimikas has plenty of options and opportunities if he were to look to leave Liverpool, whilst it might be fair to say that the Reds will not necessarily miss him, either.
