​Imminent Liverpool signing Tsimikas was set to join Nice in June

Impending Liverpool signing Konstantinos Tsimikas was almost a Nice player in June.

The left-back is reportedly having a medical with the Reds next week and signing as a back up for Andy Roberston.

The Reds moved for Tsimikas from Olympiacos after they could not agree a deal with Norwich City for Jamal Lewis.

The Premier League club wanted too much money, and the Reds are getting Tsimikas for £11.75 million.

But he could have joined Nice a month or two ago, according to Di Marzio.

Leicester had also been interested in the 24-year-old Greece international as a potential replacement for ben Chilwell.

He is expected to sign a four-year deal with Liverpool once his medical is completed.
