According to The Mirror, Liverpool will announce the signing of Thiago from Bayern Munich today.

The report has added that the Reds will pay Bayern an initial transfer fee of £20 million for the 29-year-old former Barcelona central midfielder.

Bargain signing for Liverpool

Thiago has been brilliant for Bayern over the years and has established himself as a serial winner.

The central midfielder also won the Champions League with Bayern last season, and at the reported transfer fee of £20 million, he would be a bargain signing for Liverpool.

Thiago is a player who is at the top of his game, and he would make an instant impact at Anfield.

The Reds have a strong midfield, and Thiago would give it more guile, class and creativity, as Jurgen Klopp’s side aim to win the Premier League title again this season and also make an impact in the Champions League.
