Liverpool are closing in on a deal to sign Spanish midfielder Thiago Alcantara from Bayern Munich for £27m.
Thiago, 29, joined the German giants from Barcelona in 2013 and played in last season’s Champions League final victory over Paris St-Germain.
Talks are ongoing between Liverpool and Bayern over the player, who has one year left on his contract.
Thiago would be Jurgen Klopp’s second signing of the transfer window after left-back Kostas Tsimikas.
