Bild’s reliable head of football Christian Falk has offered an exciting update on Liverpool’s apparent pursuit of Thiago Alcantara after being quizzed on the transfer rumour by a fan.
Spanish publication Sport reported last night that the Reds were in advanced talks for the signing of the world-class midfielder, who is said to be available for just €35m.
Falk responded to the fan asking for some clarity on Thiago with a teasing response suggesting that rumour has been ‘whispered in the dressing room of Bayern’.

29-year-old Thiago would certainly be a fine addition to Jurgen Klopp’s side; the deep-lying playmaker would certainly add a world-class level of creativity to Liverpool’s midfield.
Thiago has established himself as one of the best central midfielders since joining Bayern, the ace’s unmatched passing ability have made the Spaniard a dangerous threat from the middle of the park.
Whilst Falk is one of the most reliable journalist in the world when it comes to transfer news – having been the source of many of the updates on Timo Werner – this response comes across as more of a tease, rather than confirmation that the rumours are concrete.
