Liverpool edge ahead of Leicester in battle for Olympiakos star
Jürgen Klopp is looking for a back-up to Andy Robertson.
Liverpool and Leicester have both enquired about the availability of Olympiakos left-back Kostas Tsimikas, according to the Mail.
Jurgen Klopp is on the hunt for a back-up to Andy Robertson, the only natural left-back in the Liverpool squad. The Reds had a £10m bid for Norwich's Jamal Lewis rejected earlier in the week.
Leicester, meanwhile, are lining up Tsimikas as a replacement for Ben Chilwell, who is likely to leave this summer to either Manchester City or Chelsea.
The 24-year-old drew attention from Premier League sides after impressing against Wolves in the Europa League, with Chelsea and Everton also reportedly interested.
But at the moment Liverpool and Leicester are at the front of the queue, with Olympiakos reportedly ready to sell the Greek international for a fee of £12m.
The league champions are looking for some back-up for Robertson at left-back and Tsimikas and Norwich City's Lewis are both said to be on their list. Norwich will be looking for somewhere in the region of £20m so Klopp may look to the Olympiakos star, who they could get for in the region of £12-£14m.
Leicester would hope to receive a fee of around six times that for Chilwell so could comfortably afford the fee, but it could be a case of Liverpool acting first before the Foxes complete the sale of the England international.
