Rather excitingly for Liverpool fans, the rumours around Thiago Alcantara are building. It started with claims in Germany that the Spaniard held a get-together at his Bavaria residence recently and hinted to teammates that he’s set to leave Bayern Munich this summer.

With a contract expiring in June 2021, Thiago had agreed on the outlines of a new deal, only to then not sign it and consider his future.

Liverpool have been the club most linked, with various German reports about Jurgen Klopp being a fan and feeling Thiago could be just what the Reds need to help them retain their title next season.

Those rumours have spread around Europe, and now France Football have got involved. They state Klopp ‘would like to attract’ Thiago to Anfield, and explained just what a tempting prospect that would be for any player right now.

However, France Football have strongly, and at some length, urged PSG to provide competition to the Premier League club. Should that idea build in France, and the Ligue 1 champions take the bait, then it could turn into an interesting transfer tussle this summer.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is also thought to have some level of interest.
