Sport has reported that the Reds are close to signing the Spain international central midfielder from German giants Bayern Munich.

Klopp told The Liverpool Echo when asked about Thiago: “Would you be surprised if I don’t give an answer on that, just because I never answer these kind of questions.

“Thiago Alcantara is a really good player. Like a lot of other players out there, I like (him) a lot. But that’s all I have to say about that.”

Stats

According to WhoScored, Thiago made 20 starts and four substitute appearances in the Bundesliga for Bayern this season, scoring three goals in the process.

The former Barcelona star has also made five starts and one substitute appearance in the Champions League for the German giants this campaign, according to WhoScored.

Moving to Liverpool?

While Klopp has not said if he wants to sign Thiago, that the Liverpool boss actually answered the question about the midfiedler in a positive way amid speculation suggests that the 29-year-old could be on his way to Anfield.

The Spain international is a very good player who would make the Reds a better team in the middle of the park.

Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge recently said that the former Barcelona central midfielder wants to leave, as quoted on Skysports.com, and one should not be surprised if he ends up at Anfield in the coming days.
