Liverpool had a relatively quiet summer window. The club only brought in three senior players. Two of those players, Diogo Jota and Thiago Alcantara, have made large impacts on Liverpool's season. The third signing, however, has not. 

The left back joined Liverpool in the summer from Greek giants Olympiacos FC for a rumoured fee of £11.75 million ($14.3 million). When he joined, the Greek international was tipped to push Andy Robertson for the starting role as left-back in Jurgen Klopp's set up.

However, Liverpool may be already willing to give up on him after just five times for The Reds. In those five appearances, the 24 year-old has played just 225 minutes of senior football amidst injuries and talks that he has not adapted as quickly as Klopp had hoped for.

Napoli have been keen on signing the Liverpool left back and even were the main competition for his signature in the summer. Reports claim that the Naples based club have been actively negotiating with Liverpool sporting director Michael Edwards over a summer transfer for Tsimikas. 

Although it is unsure how much Liverpool would demand for their backup left back, the report states that Napoli would be willing to pay upwards of £11 million for the Greek defender's services. 

While Jurgen Klopp sent out Takumi Minamino on loan, Tsimikas continues to sit on the bench and not make an impact. Is this a sign that Klopp has well and truly given up on the summer signing just months after his arrival in Merseyside?
