Wijnaldum wants to stay at Anfield, but does have interest from Barcelona, which means that his future remains insecure.

The Spaniard would become Liverpool’s highest earning player, with the National reporting that the Reds top earner, Mohamed Salah, is on £200,000-a-week.

Thiago would improve the quality of Liverpool’s midfield though, and he would be an extremely exciting capture for Jurgen Klopp’s side if he was to arrive.
