Bayern Munich star Thiago Alcantara “does not fit the mould” of what Liverpool require in their midfield, according to Reds great Steve Nicol.
Liverpool have been tipped to move for Thiago after Bayern chief Karl-Heinz Rummenigge last month confirmed the Spain international is seeking a move away.
The German club’s head coach Hansi Flick has encouraged the 29-year-old to join a Premier League club and the reigning champions are believed to be interested.
Liverpool legend Nicol does not believe Thiago is the right type of player for Jurgen Klopp’s energetic side, but he would still sign the Barcelona academy product to use as a back-up option. (Vanguard)
