Dietmar Hamann backs Thiago Alcantara to make £30m Liverpool move

‘Jurgen Klopp could use a technician like him’: Former Liverpool midfielder Dietmar Hamann backs Thiago Alcantara to make £30m Anfield move due to the amount of ‘workhorses’ in Reds’ midfield

  • Thiago Alcantara has been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool this summer
  • The Spanish midfielder has just 12 months remaining on deal at Bayern Munich
  • Dietmar Hamann believes he could flourish in Jurgen Klopp’s midfield 

Dietmar Hamann is convinced that a move for Thiago Alcantara would make sense for Liverpool this summer.

The Bayern Munich midfielder has been linked with a move to Jurgen Klopp’s champions as he seeks a new challenge away from Germany.

He has entered the final year of his contract in Bavaria, and Hamann believes his skillset would improve Klopp and his midfield options.

‘At 29, he doesn’t quite fit the profile of the Reds’ purchasing policy,’ Hamann told Abendzeitung Munich. 

‘Nevertheless, a transfer would make sense in my eyes, because Jurgen Klopp has more workhorses in his midfield with Jordan Henderson, Fabinho and Naby Keita and could use a technician like Thiago well.’

Thiago could be available for around £30million, which Hamann believes would be good business all around.  

‘That would be a very good deal in Corona times, Liverpool certainly wants to keep the price down,’ he added.

‘Thiago is 29 and when everyone is fit in the Bayern midfield around Joshua Kimmich, Leon Goretzka and Thomas Muller, he sits on the bench. 

‘Thiago certainly has brilliant moments, I like to watch him. But the hard facts are: Bayern was never in a Champions League final with him.

‘The bottom line is still the most likely option for me to go to Liverpool.’
