Source of Tsimikas transfer reveals Liverpool have new Olympiacos man on radar
Liverpool are tracking Olympiacos midfielder Aguibou Camara, according to a reputable source from Greece.
The Reds have yet to replace Gini Wijnaldum, who left for PSG on a free transfer in the summer.
Winger Xherdan Shaqiri also departed Anfield in the last transfer window, with Curtis Jones finding himself established with the first team.
It has left pundits to suggest that the Reds may well be light in the midfield area, especially if injuries hit hard similarly to last season.
Jordan Henderson, 31, missed a large chunk on last season through injury, but has since recovered and penned a new deal until 2025.
Klopp though remains on the lookout for midfielders after adding only defender Ibrahima Konate in the summer.
Now, SporTime claim that Liverpool’s wide-ranging scouting network has come across 20-year-old Camara. And Liverpool had representatives watching the attacking midfielder in the Europa League last month.
Reds scouts were in Turkey to watch Camara help Olympiacos defeat Fenerbahce 3-0.
Per the report, there were a number of scouts watching in Istanbul, with Liverpool’s representatives “impressed” with player.
A number of clubs from France, where he is well known, after moving from Lille in the summer, have checked on his progress.

The link has come via, journalist Giannis Chorianopoulos, who was apparently one of the first sources to break the story that Liverpool were interested in Olympiacos left-back Kostas Tsimikas.
Tsimikas signed for the Reds for £11.75m soon after and now Chorianopoulos says Liverpool are keen on Camara.
Camara has started the last four games for the Greek side, scoring and assisting once.
The Guinea international also featured against Sudan in a 1-1 draw on Wednesday night. Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita was also in action for Guinea and was a sub.
Liverpool have a good relationship with Olympiacos after signing Tsimikas smoothly in August 2020. And another potential raid on the Greek top-flight could be on the cards.
