Premier League champions Liverpool are close to signing Olympiakos left-back Kostas Tsimikas for an estimated 16 million euros, Greek and British media have reported today.
The 24-year-old has been one of the Greek side’s star performers this season as they stormed to their 45th Greek Super League title.
Liverpool moved for Tsimikas after they were unable to agree a fee with Norwich City for Jamal Lewis in their pursuit of a deputy for Andy Robertson.
The Greek media said late on Sunday, Tsimikas was about to board a plane to Britain to negotiate the details of his contract with Liverpool.
Local reports agreed that Olympiakos will get 13 million euros to concede its player to Liverpool plus some performance bonuses that could reach up to 3-4 million euros, and a stake in the player’s resale proceeds that will be confirmed.
The British media said Tsimikas will get a contract keeping him at Anfield until 2025.
