  • Klopp views him as an integral figure

WHAT HAPPENED? According to The Athletic, the left-back is on the verge of signing a new contract. The Greece international has given the green light to a two-year extension, ensuring his stay at Anfield until the summer of 2027. This extension comes as a recognition of Tsimikas's significant impact since his £11.75 million move from Olympiacos three years ago.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Tsimikas was signed to provide competition to Andy Robertson. But soon he proved his mettle and boasts of having 61 appearances in various competitions for Liverpool. Notably, he played a crucial role by scoring the winning penalty in the 2022 FA Cup final shootout against Chelsea at Wembley.

While he has made only one substitute appearance this season, Tsimikas remains a highly valued member of Jurgen Klopp's squad. The manager is eager to retain his services, and negotiations for the new contract have progressed swiftly.
