Kostas Tsimikas – A Pretty Good Fit for Liverpool, If not “Perfect”

Ever since the Premier League season ended, all eyes in the football world have been focused on Liverpool to see how the Premier League Champions strengthen their squad to mount a defence of the title in the next season.  The left back position has been a key area to be strengthened since there has been little cover for Andy Robertson in that position.

Eight Centre-Backs Liverpool Could Look At To Fill A Need

With Kostas Tsimikas set to be announced as Liverpool's first summer signing this week, Liverpool have ticked off one box on their list of tasks for this summer. They have found a back-up leftback to offer cover and competition for Andy Robertson. With that done and dusted, Liverpool can move on to other areas that need addressing.

Minamino Ready To Step Into Firmino's Shoes

Leading up to Liverpool’s recent fixture against Arsenal, the TV broadcaster showed highlights from the Reds’ 5-1 trashing of the same opposition at Anfield towards the end of 2018.
