According to various sources – such as Sport, Tancredi Palmeri and Varsky Sports – Liverpool have agreed personal terms with Thiago Alcantara and now just need to make a deal with Bayern Munich.

There have been questions raised about the credibility of the rumours and rightly so; Liverpool signing Thiago would be very out of character. He is nearly 30-years-old and would become one of the club’s top earners. However, Kopites have pointed out that Varsky Sports have previously been on the money when the Reds signed Sadio Mane and Mario Balotelli.

The Spaniard has won an embarrassment of trophies during his career including league titles in Spain and Germany as well as the Champions League with Barcelona. He would bring a creative spark to the Liverpool midfield that Kopites have been crying out for. I personally have never gotten over the sale of Xabi Alonso.

It is safe to say that Reds are excited by the rumours.

Though some are concerned about the maestro’s injury record.

Despite his patchy medical history there can be no denying his quality.

 

Even Arsenal fans are worried about the impact he could have.

Kevin Palmer believes that signing the Spaniard would be testament to the lure of playing for Jürgen Klopp.

Although some Kopites are worried that the rumours are just a tactic to get the midfielder improved terms in Munich.
