It is said the 31-year-old has two main reasons for wanting to stay at Anfield; his ‘excellent relationship’ with Klopp and the fact he wants to continue with the club’s long-term project. The feeling is reportedly mutual with the Liverpool board, who want Thiago to continue being an integral part of Klopp’s squad.
Despite no plans for Thiago to be sold, as well as Fabio Carvalho arriving, Liverpool will supposedly look to bring in a new midfielder this summer. A move for Renato Sanches is said to be ‘unlikely’ due to the Portuguese star’s wage demands.
Aurelien Tchouameni is another player being linked to Merseyside, but Monaco’s asking price may prove too much for Liverpool. He was available for around £38m last summer, but Monaco would demand a much higher fee this time around.
