Liverpool are "on the verge" of signing Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago for a fee of €30 million.


Both clubs have been locked in negotiations all summer in an attempt to reach a deal for the Spaniard.

The Athletic have reported talks accelerated on Monday, as Bayern wanted a deal wrapped up before the Bundesliga season begins.

As a result, a fee has finally been agreed and the 29-year-old will be on his way to Anfield.

The Champions League winner still has to finalise terms but that will be "straightforward."

He has been vocal in wanting a new challenge after spending seven years with Bayern and winning the treble last season.

Thiago had negotiated a contract extension in May before informing the German outfit he wanted to leave.

Former Bayern president Uli Hoeness revealed earlier this month that Thiago "probably" agreed personal terms with Liverpool a while back, while Manchester United were also interested.

"We offered him [Thiago] a great four-year contract but in the last minute he changed his mind and told us he wants a new challenge. He probably has an agreement with Liverpool or Manchester United, or with both," Hoesness told Sport1, via @iMiaSanMia.

Thiago will become Liverpool's second signing of the summer after the capture of Kostas Tsimikas last month.

He made 40 appearances in all competitons this season, scoring three times and assisting twice.

Do you think Thiago will be a good signing for Liverpool?
