Liverpool will pay just £20m upfront for Thiago Alcantara. Jurgen Klopp has been chasing the Champions League winner.
Liverpool are closing in on a deal to land star midfielder Thiago Alcantara after formally contacting Bayern Munich.
The Spain international has been persistently linked with the Premier League champions since July, when he made it clear that he would not be signing another contract in Germany.
The deal is worth an initial £20m guaranteed, rising to £25m in bonuses. Thiago will sign a four-year deal and wear the No 6 jersey.
He has his heart set on playing for Liverpool and finalising personal terms is not expected to be a problem in the event of Liverpool and Bayern coming to a solution on the fee.
