John Aldridge has taken to Twitter to give his reaction to speculation that Thiago Alcantara will join Liverpool in the summer transfer window.

The former Liverpool striker believes that Thiago would be a good signing for the Premier League champions.

However, the former Republic of Ireland international has said that he would like the Reds to sign a new striker in the summer transfer window, but he believes that it is unlikely now.

According to The Mirror, Liverpool have agreed to pay Bayern £20 million to sign Thiago this summer, with the central midfielder to complete the transfer today.

Do Liverpool need a new striker?

Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino are a formidable front-three, and it is hard to see Liverpool sign a forward who will be better than them.

However, the Reds could do with more competition in attack, but perhaps instead of signing a striker, they should look at someone within the club.

Rhian Brewster enjoyed a successful loan spell at Swansea City last season, and the striker would be a good option to have in the squad for manager Jurgen Klopp.
