Liverpool Closing In On First Signing As Premier League Champions

Norwich City's Jamal Lewis was earmarked as a top target to provide extra cover for Andy Robertson at left-back, but having been far apart in valuation, Liverpool are now closing in on Kostas Tsimikas from Olympiakos.

As per widespread reports, Liverpool are in advanced talks with the 24-year old, who has also been courted by Leicester.

The fee for the Greek international would be €13 million (£11.75 million).

Tsimikas is set to have a medical next week before putting pen to paper on a deal at Anfield, having recently been part of the Olympiakos side knocked out of the Europa League by Wolves.

WhoScored placed him in their list of their best 11 rookie players in this season's Champions League group stage, while Tsimikas was also key in Olympiakos's 45th Greek Super League title triumph.

Jurgen Klopp's side have been desperate for a natural left-back, having often played James Milner as a deputy whenever Robertson has been unavailable for selection.
