Jamie Carragher is optimistic that they will make a deal worth about £20 million for Thiago Alcantara.
“Liverpool has a few players in the squad around 28 or 29 and that’s why the offer is going to have to be on their terms – maybe about £20 m,” Carragher said to The Mirror.
“The only thing that could worry Liverpool is Thiago’s age- but I think the signing is still going to happen,” he added.
Liverpool will thus make a deal for the Bayern Munich midfielder “on their terms,” claims the Reds legend:
“What Thiago does is bringing something new to what Liverpool has in the midfield.
“All of the midfielders do a brilliant job, but they’re quite similar. It would be nice to have someone who could control the game more. It would be nice if they had a bit more technical.
“I think a move is likely to happen- towards the end of the window.”
