Gary Lineker has tweeted his delight about Tottenham Hotspur signing Gareth Bale and Liverpool buying Thiago Alcantara.

The Daily Mail have reported how Tottenham are expected to announce the signing of Bale later today, while Sky claim that Thiago is set to join Liverpool.

And Lineker feels that the arrival of the pair is great news for the Premier League.

Bale’s arrival at Tottenham has caused huge excitement among their fans.

The Welshman is arguably the most gifted player to represent Tottenham in recent memory and even though he has not featured much for Real Madrid of late it is anticipated that he will have a major impact.

Thiago, meanwhile, should improve the quality of Liverpool’s midfield considerably.

The Spaniard is genuinely world-class, and ranks among the finest players in his position in Europe.

Thiago should add creativity and composure to Liverpool’s midfield ranks, and his arrival will surely boost Jurgen Klopp’s side’s chances of retaining their Premier League title.
