Summer transfer target Thiago Alcantara is reportedly close to penning a deal with champions of England Liverpool.
According to Diario Sport (relayed via @LFCTransferRoom), advanced talks are being held between Liverpool and the player. The midfielder could be set to be the Reds’ first summer signing ahead of next season.
Would you like to see Liverpool sign Thiago?
Thiago has three goals and two assists from midfield this campaign with Bayern Munich and boasts 45 goals and 57 assists across his career so far (via Transfermarkt). The 29-year-old has also enjoyed time with Barcelona, as well as boasting two Club World Cups, 11 league titles across Spain and Germany and one Champions League title.
Thiago’s expertise could be a great asset to Jurgen Klopp’s side and it seems a lot of Liverpool fans are also in agreement. One supporter has responded to the news saying ‘he would be perfect for us’ whilst another has begged the club to ‘please sign him’. With a total of 27 major trophies won and 330 senior appearances, it’s not surprising why Kopites think he would be beneficial to their squad.

He would be perfect for us. He can defend well, he can create, he can run, he can score. Top signing if we can get him!
