Gini Wijnaldum's departure to Barcelona can help Liverpool fund a move for Thiago Alcantara, according to Mundo Deportivo. The Spanish publication reporting: "Barça press to sign Wijnaldum from Liverpool" with the Reds midfielder having become "one of the great objectives’" for the Catalan giants' new boss, Dutch compatriot Ronald Koeman.
Thiago has a ‘preliminary agreement’ with the Premier League champions, and he could occupy Wijnaldum’s place if he ends up leaving the club.
The article adds:
The ex-Newcastle United man’s signing would ‘not be very expensive’ for the Blaugrana, considering his age and duration left in his current deal.
If Barca’s ‘interest’ in Wijnaldum crystallises, and if they end up paying a fee to Liverpool to acquire his services, Mundo then add, the Merseyside club could use the funds to ‘pay for the signing of Thiago’.
