Liverpool swoop for Napoli target Tsimikas

Napoli have reportedly been in talks with Olympiakos for Konstantinos Tsimikas for at least eight months, but seem to be losing out to Liverpool.

Napoli are reportedly frustrated with Amin Younes after he turned down moves to Sampdoria, Parma, Genoa, Torino, Sassuolo and Olympiacos.

The 26-year-old winger was picked up as a free agent from Ajax in the summer of 2018, but has barely played at the Stadio San Paolo.

He was on the market in January, but according to Il Corriere del Mezzogiorno newspaper, rejected offers from Sampdoria, Parma, Genoa, Torino, Sassuolo and Olympiacos.

The race is now on to get Younes sold and he is not interested in clubs from Saudi Arabia or Qatar either.

Napoli back in for Tsimikas

With Milan sending Ricardo Rodriguez to PSV Eindhoven, Napoli have turned to Olympiacos left-back Kostas Tsimikas.

Rodriguez had wanted to reunite with former Rossoneri coach Gennaro Gattuso at Napoli, but Milan were only prepared to accept a permanent transfer.

This means the Partenopei have to look elsewhere, so they are reportedly turning their attention back to their previous target Tsimikas.

The asking price is €12-13m, while the most recent offer from Napoli was €8m plus €2m in performance-related bonuses.
