The Serie A title holders are believed to be in the market for a left wing-back and the Greek ace has been earmarked as a possible candidate for the role.
Signed from Olympiacos for £11.7million (Sky Sports) last August to act as cover for Andy Robertson, the 25-year-old struggled to make the desired impact at Anfield.

– Tsimikas … https://t.co/9tJ8OK6Chc (@Transferzone00)
The report claims that the Nerazzurri have been forced to seek options at left-back after Ashley Young rejoined Aston Villa as a free agent.
Tsimikas made just seven appearances across all competitions last term for the Reds, playing just five minutes of Premier League football.
Meanwhile, Robertson played 49 times and appeared in every league game – amassing 3,386 minutes.

This is a huge conundrum for Jurgen Klopp and co to deal with.
Valued at £7.2million and under contract at Anfield until 2025 (Transfermarkt), Klopp would certainly utilise a healthy incoming fee for the Greek.
However, unlike the wantaway Neco Williams, Liverpool are rather bereft of candidates to backup Robertson, meaning any funds would have to be set aside for the role anyway.
After a year of adaptation to life with the club, keeping Tsimikas and expecting more is surely the best way to go.
