Liverpool are ‘very close’ to signing Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara, MySportDab reports.
The German champions want £32m for the 29-year-old, who has been at the Bundesliga club for seven successful seasons.
However, Thaigo now wants a new challenge.
According to SPORT, Negotiations between Liverpool and Bayern Munich have now advanced
MySportDab understands that Liverpool want to pay the transfer fee in instalments rather than at once this summer.
Alcantara’s contract at Bayern Munich expires next year and talks over a new contract have stalled.
A deal for Alcantara would be a very shocking move for th club, as the owners FSG prefer to sign young stars who can grow in value.
Alcantara is moving towards the end of his football career so an Anfield switch would be still be shocker.
But Liverpool Coach Jurgen Klopp is a long term admirer of the Spanish midfielder.
Alcantara has played 35 matches for Bayern Munich this season, and scored three goals.
The Reds are not ready to spend a lot this summer due to the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
