A recent twist in the story linking Thiago to an Anfield move has got fans feeling hopeful once again.
The midfielder has been classed as close to signing for Liverpool, but no official moves have been made from the Merseyside camp. A new update from Abendzeitung München (relayed via @LFCTransferRoom), claims that a deal is on the cards and will happen shortly.
Will Thiago be a Liverpool player next season?
The report states Thiago will cost €30million (£26.6m) and the player is very keen to see the move over the line. Similarly, Jurgen Klopp also wants to make the deal happen after months of speculation surrounding the potential transfer.
Should talks come to fruition, the 29-year-old will become the club’s second senior signing of the summer. Liverpool have already welcomed Greek left-back Kostas Tsimikas to the team ahead of the Reds’ fight to retain their Premier League crown.
Fans have responded to the news and find themselves getting excited over the idea of Thiago becoming a Liverpool player. One supporter has said ‘I’m believing it’ whilst another is more skeptical and is asking ‘is it happening?’
The club’s fanbase have been through a rollercoaster with this specific transfer story, but it doesn’t stop them hoping Thiago is Anfield-bound.
