Liverpool are not considering a swap deal with Juventus for Adrien Rabiot that would see Kostas Tsimikas going the other way.

That’s according to Sport Time journalist Giannis Chorianopoulos, who insists the Reds would not consider such a move.

Liverpool are believed to be looking at bolstering their midfield in the January transfer window, with that area of the team having been a problem one.

Jurgen Klopp admitted late in the summer transfer window that he had made a mistake in not signing a midfielder, leading to a late loan move for Juventus’ Arthur.

That deal has proved to be a disaster, with the Brazilian arriving injured and working his way back, only to injure himself again while playing for the U21s.

That injury looks set to rule him out until February, leading to reports that Liverpool may look to bolster the position in the January transfer window.

One claim had been that they could propose a swap deal with Juventus for midfielder Adrien Rabiot that would see Tsimikas go the other way, but Chorianopoulos refutes that idea.

“No thoughts at Liverpool for a swap deal between Rabiot and Tsimikas. Tsimikas is a key player for Klopp,” he wrote on Twitter.

That’s unlikely to put an end to the rumours of course, but it seems that in Greece the word is that no such move will be happening any time soon.
