It's believed Bayern Munich discussed Liverpool's interest during talks with the Spanish international keen on a switch to the Premier League.

Jurgen Klopp spoke glowingly about Thiago after Liverpool played Bayern Munich in the Champions League last season.

"I've probably never seen them defend like that," he said.

"Respect to them as they made it difficult for us, although we had good situations where we missed the last touch.

"Thiago is a world-class footballer. He played that deep-lying playmaker role very well. Alongside [Javi] Martinez, they were very good."
