Thiago Alcantara’s deal to Liverpool is gradually become a reality as reports say the Premier League outfit is closing in on a €30million deal for the Bayern Munich midfielder.
Both clubs have been in talks over the potential switch of the player and latest reports by The Athletic have revealed that negotiations have been accelerated.
The German club reportedly wants the deal to be finalised before the new Bundesliga season begins.
As a result, a fee has finally been agreed and the 29-year-old will be on his way to Anfield.
He has been vocal in wanting a new challenge after spending seven years with Bayern and winning the treble last season.
Liverpool are desperately in need of a midfielder and Jurgen Klopp has been told by the club that he needs to raise funds if he truly wants to bring Bayern Munich’s Thiago to Anfield.
Club legend Jamie Carragher has disclosed that the reigning Premier League champions have been told to bring €30million for Thiago by Bayern Munich.
Recall that Klopp had to let Dejan Lovren leave the club before he could prosecute the signing of left-back Konstantinos Tsimikas for £11.75m.
Other players that could be sold include Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Xherdan Shaqiri and Nabi Keita should any club make an offer to the Reds.
"Liverpool have got three or four players in the squad they are looking to move on.
"I think the huge clamour for Thiago is a little bit disrespectful to Liverpool's current midfield three," Carragher earlier said.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that veteran Brazilian defender Thiago Silva handed Chelsea camp a huge boost after joining them in training for the first time on Wednesday, September 16.
The 35-year-old joined Frank Lampard's side on a free transfer from Paris Saint Germain this transfer window.
He signed a year deal with the London club until the end of the current season. He participated in the Blues session along with Ben Chilwell - which includes group matches and other drills.
It will be recalled that both players were not part of their Monday night's victory over Brighton & Hove Albion which saw them kick off their campaign on a winning note.
