Liverpool are expected to make a move for Bayern Munich’s midfielder Thiago according to the English outlet, Mirror. Thiago was instrumental in Bayern’s Champions League winning campaign, playing well in their final against PSG. Bayern are demanding £27million for Thiago which Liverpool might not be willing to pay but Bayern might be willing to re-negotiate considering that the midfielder only has 12 months left on his contract. Also considering that reports indicate that he has refused to sign a new contract with Bayern, it looks likely that Bayern will want to get some fee rather than letting him go for free next year.
Thiago in Liverpool’s 4-3-3 formation
Jurgen Klopp has preferred the 4-3-3 formation generally during his time at Liverpool. Most of his starting 11 is settled with the front 3, the defence and the goalkeeper being sure starters for the new season. If there is any weakness in the squad, it would be in midfield where there is some lack of creativity and Klopp’s previous purchases like Keita and Oxlade-Chamberlain have failed to cement first team spots. Thiago with his experience playing in a high pressing team just like Liverpool will be the perfect fit in Liverpool’s midfield giving them the extra creativity and control in the middle of the park. With additions like Thiago in the squad, Liverpool will be favourites to retain their Premier League title, so if you are a betting person, check out bet365 bonuskoodi 2020 to place your bets on Liverpool.
Thiago along with Henderson and Fabinho will be a perfect combination of creativity, dynamism and defensive awareness. Replacing Wijnaldum with Thiago will certainly help Liverpool in keeping the ball better and also in creating chances. This might help them in breaking down deep-lying defences like they faced while playing Atletico in the Champions League this season. Overall, this transfer is perfect for Liverpool and with Thiago having only 12 months left on his contract, they might be able to get him on a reduced fee. Liverpool have been excellent in the transfer market for the past few years with both purchases and in extracting the most value from their sales and if they manage to buy Thiago, it will be a continuation of their efficient transfer policy.
