Liverpool have made a major move in their pursuit for priority transfer target Thiago Alcantara.
As reported by James Pearce, the Reds have officially made up ground in this long running chase. The Bayern Munich midfielder is on the verge of becoming a Liverpool player after both clubs agreed to a transfer fee of €30million (£27.2m).
Can Liverpool win the Premier League again this season?
Thiago will undergo a medical and wear the No.6 shirt should everything progress successfully. David Maddock has provided further insight to this long-awaited move, claiming the Spaniard could make his Liverpool debut against Lincoln next week.
The Reds are set to take on the League One side in the third round of the EFL Cup competition.
This news has sent fans into overdrive and they have flocked to the update to express their excitement. One supporter is so thrilled that they have tweeted they ‘can’t breathe’.
Another has discovered that Virgil van Dijk has liked Paul Joyce’s similar update and has replied saying ‘VVD approves’.
