Arsenal join Liverpool in Thiago Alcantara chase
The 29-year-old Thiago is in the final year of his contract with the German champions and has no desire of signing a new deal. Liverpool have been credited with serious interest in the Spanish international, while it has also been claimed that the midfielder has also has his heart set on a move to Anfield.
The Gunners have made an enquiry for the former Barcelona ace, however, have asked Bayern to lower their valuation for the Spaniard as well. In addition, the north London outfit will have to offload players before they are able to make a move for the 29-year-old. (h/t Express)
Liverpool have a packed midfield unit currently, despite the departure of Adam Lallana. However, a chance to sign someone as talented as Thiago shouldn’t be let go of. However, Jurgen Klopp might also have to cut some players from his squad in order to be able to sign the Barcelona academy product.
An alternative could be to wait either till January to sign him up on the cheap when he enters the last six months of his contract. Or we could even delay the move till the next year and snap him up on a free transfer, given that he is intent on moving to Anfield. (h/t Express)
