LIVERPOOL defender Kostas Tsimikas is wanted by Fenerbahce, according to reports.
The left-back signed for the Reds last summer but has struggled to make an impact on the squad, appearing just seven times in his debut season.

Fenerbahce are reportedly looking for a new left-back, and have been linked with a move for Real Madrid star Marcelo.
And according to Fotomac, via Sport Witness, the Turkish giants also like the look of Tsimikas.
They are believed to be keeping tabs on him ahead of a potential move this summer.
But a move may only happen if Fenerbahce sell both Caner Erkin and Filip Novak this summer, as Liverpool could demand a significant fee for Tsimikas.
The Greece international was signed for £12million a year ago and still has four years remaining on his contract.
However, the report claims Liverpool could seek a loan move for the 25-year-old.

But with Fenerbahce said to be aiming to buy Tsimikas before loaning him out that does not really fit their plans.
Jurgen Klopp seems to think Tsimikas is surplus to requirements, which is unsurprising given Andy Robertson is rarely unavailable.
As a result, Tsimikas may have to prepare for another season of sitting on the bench if he does not get a move this summer.

Ryan Lochte feels like he let everyone down with Olympic dream shattered

Ryan Lochte wanted so badly to return to the Olympics this year, wanted to leave a different lasting impression after his scandalous 2016 Games in Brazil.
But his Olympic dream fell short Friday night. In his final chance, the 36-year-old finished seventh in the 200-meter individual medley at the US Olympic trials in Omaha, missing out on a fifth Olympics appearance at this summer’s games in Tokyo.
“I wanted to prove so much to everyone,” an emotional Lochte told reporters afterward, using a tissue at one point to wipe away tears.
During the 2016 Games in Rio, Lochte and three other US swimmers were found to have vandalized a gas station bathroom after they lied about being held up in a robbery. Lochte was suspended by USA Swimming and the US Olympic Committee for 10 months after the incident. He also received a 14-month suspension in 2018 for using an IV to get vitamins.Ryan Lochte reacts after failing to qualify for the Olympics in the 200-meter individual medley on June 18, 2021.Getty Images
“I think this is probably my most important swim meet that I’ve ever had in my entire career, the one that meant the most to me,” Lochte said Friday. “So falling short and feeling like I let everyone down was one of the hardest things.”An emotional Ryan Lochte speaks after failing to qualify for the Tokyo Olympics on June 18, 2021.Getty Images
Though this feels like the end of Lochte’s competitive career, he insists he’s not done yet.
“I’ll quit swimming when I stop having fun,” he said. “I love this sport. It’s gotten me to places that people dream about. So I’m very grateful for that. I’m still having fun. I’m finding different ways making swimming fun again. I still want to race.”Filed under 2020 olympics , olympics , ryan lochte , swimming , tokyo games , 6/20/21
