Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher thinks Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara will prove to be a “really good addition” if the Premier League club can get a deal over the line.
Widespread reports claim that the Reds have agreed a deal with the German champions worth an initial £20m with another £5m owed in the form of add-ons.
The Athletic says that the Spain international ‘still has to finalise terms’ with Jurgen Klopp’s men but that ‘should be more straightforward’.
OPINION: Thiago adds an aesthetic dimension to the Liverpool machine
And reacting to the news, Carragher thinks Thiago could add another dimension to Klopp’s midfield at Anfield.
Carragher told Sky Sports: “Liverpool have got five or six midfield players – they rotate well because they need energy in that position – but a lot of the players are pretty similar.
“Thiago would be something different – less in energy but more technical – and I think he would be a really good addition.
“Liverpool are world-class at the top end of the pitch, world-class in terms of their defence and goalkeeper; I think they’re top-class in midfield.
“Something could be added technically and Thiago fits the bill, so fingers crossed he comes.”
