Liverpool will seal a deal for Thiago Alcantara on their terms, Jamie Carragher has said.
Carragher recently revealed that he feels the midfielder will join the Reds eventually in a deal worth around £20 million ($26m).
According to him, even if the Spaniard does not fit the Reds’ recent recruitment mould, he still feels a cut-price deal can be done for him.
He added that the only disadvantage with such a deal would be Thiago’s age, because he is not exactly young.
His words, “The only worry that might put Liverpool off is Thiago’s age – but I think the signing will still happen,”
“Liverpool have a few players in the squad around 28 or 29 and that’s why the deal will have to be on their terms – maybe nearer £20m.”
“What Thiago does is add something different to what Liverpool have in midfield.”
“The midfielders all do a brilliant job but are quite similar. It would be nice to have someone who can control the game more. It would be nice if they had a bit extra technically.”
“I think a move will probably happen towards the end of the window.”
