This summer transfer window, one of the players becoming available is Thiago Alcantara who did not strike another deal with the Bundesliga and is set to leave Bayern Munich to seek a new challenge. Reports have since been going around claiming the midfielder has struck a deal with Liverpool.
Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool’s manager, is keen on strengthening his team this summer but couldn’t afford to sign Timo Werner which leaves an opening for Thiago who is looking for a way into the Premier League. Sources have revealed Thiago is looking forward to working with Klopp and has agreed a deal with the club.
However, it is not yet a done deal as Liverpool have yet to agree the fee Bayern have set for the Italian player. The German club is asking £36m for Thiago which poses an issue for Liverpool who value the player around £22m. The clubs could come to an understanding soon though as Bayern are looking to spend big on Leroy Sane which makes it likely they will lower their asking price if Liverpool raises their offer.
Thiago is 1/4 to join the Premier League champions.
