In yet another surprise twist in the Thiago tale, reports claim that his brother could also be on his way to the Premier League.
That’s according to Kevin Palmer (relayed via @LFCTransferRoom), who claims that Rafinha Alcantara has been linked to Liverpool’s bitter rivals Everton. The two parties are reportedly in talks over a move to Merseyside, where he could be joining major Liverpool target Thiago.
Will Thiago be a Liverpool player next season?
Jurgen Klopp’s side have secured just one senior signing so far this summer, welcoming left-back Kostas Tsimikas over the threshold. Talks with Thiago have been ongoing, but no progress has been made regarding an official offer.
Bayern Munich are looking for £26.6million before they let the Spaniard leave.
This news has sparked a lot of debate amongst fans, with one tweeting ‘imagine the derby’ as they envisage a spicy affair should both brothers complete their respective moves to the two bitter rivals.
Another supporter however, has highlighted how ‘potentially massive’ it could be for both players making a new move and having each other for company.

Potentially massive that, I think often people forget that footballers are humans and have worries and considerations like anyone else, money, location, family etc. Remember when Sanchez was heading to Liverpool just for his wife to prefer living in London?
