Kostas Tsimikas is reportedly due for a medical with Liverpool as the club close in on their first signing since being crowned Premier League champions.

Jurgen Klopp has prioritised a move for a left-back to come in as cover for Andy Robertson this summer and Norwich’s Jamal Lewis was firmly on the German’s radar.

But the two clubs were some distance apart in their valuation of Lewis, with the Canaries holding out for an offer of £20million after turning down Liverpool’s opening £10m bid.

Versatile Bournemouth defender Lloyd Kelly and Real Madrid’s Sergio Reguilon, currently on loan at Sevilla, have been eyed as alternatives but the Reds are edging closer to landing Olympiacos full-back Tsimikas.

According to The Times, Liverpool have pencilled in a medical for Tsimikas and the Greece international is expected to agree personal terms with the Merseyside giants imminently.

It’s understood a fee of around £11.75m has been agreed with Olympiacos for the 24-year-old.

Tsimikas played against both Arsenal and Tottenham in the Europa League this season before Olympiacos’ elimination from the competition at the hands of Wolves last week.

Leicester have also been keeping close tabs on Tsimikas in case Ben Chilwell departs this summer, with Manchester City and Chelsea battling it out for the England left-back.
