Liverpool will reportedly retain the services of defender Kostas Tsimikas ahead of the 2021-22 campaign amidst no plans to sell him
Tsimikas enjoyed a frustrating first year at Anfield, making just three starts and four substitutes appearances in all competitions.
While some of his time on the sidelines can be put down to injuries, the Greece international was rarely considered as an alternative to Andrew Robertson.
However, the Liverpool Echo claims that the 25-year-old will not be sold during the summer transfer window.
The report suggests that Jurgen Klopp was left impressed with Tsimikas’s level of performance in training before the end of the season.
With Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip all missing the majority of the season through injury, Jurgen Klopp persisted with Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson in the full-back positions to avoid further disruption to his backline.
And with the centre-back trio all set to return for pre-season training, along with summer signing Ibrahima Konate, next month, it is believed Tsimikas is well-placed to feature more prominently in his second season on Merseyside.
Tsimikas penned a four-year contract when he joined from Olympiacos for £11.75m last year.
