Liverpool legend Didi Hamann believes Thiago Alcantara would be a good signing.
The Reds are being linked with a player who Jurgen Klopp knows from his time in Germany.
And Hamann thinks Thiago has the guile the Reds' central midfielders may lack.
"He doesn't quite fit the profile of the Reds' transfer policy at his age," the former Germany international midfielder told Abendzeitung.
"Regardless, a transfer would make sense in my eyes.
"On the other hand, he will surely have a new contract at Bayern waiting to be signed. I would be surprised if he was not offered a lot to stay."
He added: "Liverpool certainly want to keep the cost down.
"Thiago certainly has his brilliant moments. I like to watch him, but he's never played in a Champions League final for Bayern. The bottom line is that he's one of the most likely options for Liverpool to pursue, for me."
