Former Liverpool midfielder Dietmar Hamann has tipped his former side to sign Bayern Munich star Thiago Alcantara. Hamann claims a move to Anfield would “make sense” and that it is the ‘most likely’ option.
Thiago has recently been heavily touted to secure a move to Liverpool amid serious reported interest. Sport claiming that the 29-year-old was ‘very close‘ to a deal earlier this month. Described as ‘world class‘, the midfield technician could bring some much needed flair through the middle.
“A transfer would make sense in my eyes,” claimed Hamann to AZ. “Because Jürgen Klopp has more workhorses in his midfield with Jordan Henderson, Fabinho and Naby Keita and could use a filigree technician like Thiago well,”
“On the other hand, he had a Bavaria contract ready for signature. I would be surprised if he didn’t have a lot to offer. Otherwise you won’t reject it. The bottom line is still the most likely option for me to go to Liverpool.”
The midfielder, whilst finding a noteworthy 90.5% of his passes to teammates, also averages more completed dribbles than the vast majority of our squad – including star attackers such as Sadio Mane.
