Liverpool are reported to have agreed to buy Thiago Alcantara from Bayern Munich for £ 27 million or the equivalent of Rp.519.8 billion. Rumors of Thiago's move to Liverpool have caught on in the mid-season transfer market. Previously, the Spanish national team midfielder was said to be leaving Bayern because he did not agree to extend his contract with the Bundesliga champions.
Thiago's price talks were tough because Liverpool did not want to meet Bayern's price request. But lately, the Reds are said to be ready to pour out funds to bring in the former Barcelona player. Negotiations between the two clubs have been going on since Monday and Bayern have insisted they will not open up transfer talks when the Bundesliga begins.
Thiago's presence will enrich Klopp's choices in the midfield which is currently occupied by the likes of Georginio Wijnaldum, Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita.
