Rangers are targeting a move for Olympiacos full-back Konstantinos Tsimikas, according to a report, as Steven Gerrard looks for competition to Borna Barisic at left-back.

The Greek defender has been linked with a move to Ibrox by Turkish outlet Fotomac, after impressing during his side’s Champions League campaign this season.

The report also claims Turkish duo Fenerbache and Galatasaray are chasing the defender, as well as a host of clubs from across Europe, including Fiorentina, Nice, Weder Bremen and Rennes.

So far this season he has made 19 appearances, chipping in with three assists, and is under contract until the summer of 2023.

Gerrard only has Andy Halliday and Jon Flanagan as cover for Barisic and with both out of contract in the summer then he may well be casting his eye further afield for reinforcements.

Tsimikas clearly has a decent pedigree having played regularly for Olympiacos at domestically and in Europe this season, as well as having a handful of international caps to his name.

Gerrard has previously said there won’t be much in the way of new faces at Ibrox in January but cover in the full-back positions and in goal is something that is going to be needed sooner rather than later with a host of players out of contract in the summer and likely to move on.
