Thiago wants Liverpool move - but Klopp not seeking midfielders

Thiago Alcantara is set to be disappointed this summer as Liverpool are not looking to strengthen their midfield.

Sky Sports says the Bayern Munich midfielder would love to play for Jurgen Klopp.

However, the 29-year-old will likely not get his chance as the German is prioritising other areas this transfer window.

If the situation does change, Thiago is a midfielder that the Reds will consider.

The Spain international has one year remaining on his contract.

But Bayern have confirmed he wants to leave this summer to pursue a new challenge.

It is believed an offer £30m would get the deal done.

Klopp has Fabinho, Naby Keita, Gini Wijnaldum, Jordan Henderson, Alex Oxlaide-Chamberlain, James Milner available for his midfield and has no desire to change the dynamic after winning the Premier League title last season.
