Liverpool have completed the signing of a 24-year-old defender, Kostas Tsimikas, from Olympiacos on a five-year deal for a fee of £11.75m.
Liverpool announced their new player will provide cover for first-choice Andy Robertson in a statement via the club’s official website on Monday night.
Reacting to his signing, Tsimikas told the club’s official website;
“I’m very happy, I’m very proud to be here. For me, [it’s] the biggest club in the world. It’s an honour to be here and I will give my best.
“The league here, I like a lot. I watch it on the TV and it was always one dream I had from when I was a kid to come to play in this league and to come through.
“With a lot of work and focus on what I do and what the coach wants, and every day working hard in training, I can be on the highest level.
“[I want] to achieve [our] goals. To win the league again and also to win the Champions League.”
The Greece international was one of Olympiakos’ star performers last season as they clinched a 45th Super League title.
He made his senior debut for Olympiacos in December 2015 and went on to make 86 appearances for the Greek side in all competitions.
