While the Croatia international often frustrated fans, he did prove to play a pivotal squad role at times with Liverpool going on to win their first title in 30 years.
Jota will no doubt be a top signing for Liverpool in the long run while Thiago was an opportunity hard to turn your nose up at.
Tsimikas was a necessary transfer to provide cover at left-back but he wasn’t the only signing Liverpool were in need of making.
As soon as Lovren’s departure was announced, it became clear that Liverpool would need a replacement to provide balance to Klopp’s squad.
With just one day left of the transfer window though, no new centre-back looks set to join Anfield.
