According to Sky Sports, the Bayern Munich playmaker is keen on a move to Anfield this summer as he enters the final 12 months of his contract at the Allianz Arena.
Liverpool fans at work being greedy demanding they sign Thiago. He wants new challenge and would love to work under Klopp. Bayern willing to sell for "fair price" (£30m). Liverpool have no plans to strengthen midfield this summer but if situation changes Thiago would be an option

Thiago has made 37 appearances for the German giants this season and helped them win their eighth consecutive league title in June.

“An incredibly talented player and Liverpool need to strengthen if they want to compete on all fronts next season. A top class player and he would fit into just about every side.
“If he comes there is the question of where he plays and where he fits into that team. For a lot of players that will be a big consideration.
“It is not a move for money because Bayern could easily go on to win the Champions League next season. The best players will always have options, no matter what and he will hold all of the aces.”
Jurgen Klopp already boasts a talented midfield with Jordan Henderson, Naby Keita, Fabinho, James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Georginio Wijnaldum all to choose from.
However, the German manager is a known admirer of Thiago.
