Melissa Reddy has suggested that a potential move to Liverpool for Bayern Munich’s Thiago Alcantara could be dependent on how the market is impacted by the recent global pandemic.

The Spanish midfielder has been linked with the Anfield club and according to Tuttomercato, an agreement has been reached between the Reds and the player.

The 29-year-old, formerly of Barcelona, signed for the Bundesliga giants in 2013 for a fee of £22.5m. Since joining the Bavarian club, Thiago has won the German Cup four times and this season picked up his seventh consecutive league title. The midfielder has made 150 Bundesliga appearances, scoring a total of 17 goals.

With his current contract set to expire in June 2021, there have been suggestions that the player could be looking for a new challenge, perhaps the type that coming to the Premier League would offer.
