Ex-Liverpool fullback Enrique: Is Thiago worth the money?

Former Liverpool defender Jose Enrique has urged caution about the club signing Thiago Alcantara.

Bayern Munich are keen to sell the Spain midfielder this summer, with Liverpool listed as a possible destination.

But Enrique thinks the Reds should avoid spending big money on a player who is 29 years of age.

"If they get him, definitely he's going there because Klopp has called him and told him he's going to be a starting player often," he told Stadium Astro.

"I believe he will be a very, very good player for us but how much do you want to spend on this player and for how many years is he going to perform in your team? That's what you have to look at as well.

"I'm not sure it would be the best fit, but he's an unbelievable player, there's no doubt about that, and he would make the starting line-up."
