Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara is determined to join Liverpool during the ongoing transfer window, a report from SportBild claims.
The Spain international has declined to sign a new contract with Bayern beyond June 2021 and the club are expected to sanction his departure this summer.
In recent weeks, the likes of Arsenal, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain have all been credited with an interest in Thiago, but SportBild claims that that the 29-year-old is focused on joining the Reds.
It is added that the Spaniard has already made contact with manager Jurgen Klopp, but the Reds have yet to finalise a suitable transfer fee with the recently crowned European champions.
Bayern are currently demanding a fee of around £27m for their midfielder, but the Reds are reluctant to come close to the figure. Talks are said to be continuing between the sides regarding the player’s future.
