INSIDER: Klopp and Thiago speaking for WEEKS about Liverpool move

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is eager to sign Thiago Alcantara and has been speaking with the Bayern Munich midfielder "for weeks".

That's according to Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.

Speaking on the Pod Save the Ball podcast, Romano revealed: "Jurgen Klopp wants the player and Thiago wants to play for Liverpool.

"Thiago and Klopp have been in talks for weeks, he wants to join Liverpool."

However, Bayern are yet to receive a formal offer for Thiago, and Romano said the Reds are not keen on splashing out £27m.

"Liverpool don't want to pay Bayern's asking price and have not submitted a bid," he said.
