Despite many reports suggesting Liverpool can not afford to spend big, seven-time Bundesliga Champion, Thiago, has expressed his desire to join the club this summer.
Per SportBild, Thiago’s agent has revealed the keen interest of his player wanting to join the soon to be Premier League champions. The centre midfield maestro is valued around £43m which could be the deciding factor in one of the biggest transfer rumours this summer.
Jurgen Klopp has admitted his admiration of Thiago in recent years, expressing he is a “world-class footballer” following Bayern’s loss to Liverpool in the Champions League last season.
The Reds will surely look to improve some aspects of their team this season and the midfield department could be lacking if certain rumours suffice. Georginio Wijnaldum is yet to agree a new contract at Anfield while Adam Lallana is set to leave the club in August.
With Liverpool missing out on the signature of Timo Werner, will they step up in their pursuit to strengthen with another Bundesliga star?
