Dietmar Hamann believes Liverpool’s current midfield would benefit from the skill and technical ability of Thiago Alcantara.

Jurgen Klopp has developed a fearsome squad at Liverpool. While there is no doubt they are bursting with ability, Klopp prides himself on having a team that works extremely hard too.

This is especially so in the midfield.

The Merseyside club’s defense, which has the muscle of Van Dijk and the attacking prowess of Alexander-Arnold, or the flare Mane, Salah, and Firmino upfront.

However, in the middle of the park club legend, Dietmar Hamann thinks a player like Bayern Munich’s Thiago Alcantara is what could be missing to take Liverpool to the next level.

Speaking to Abendzeitung, he is not convinced the player will definitely leave Bavaria. But if he does Liverpool should sign him.

He said:

“He doesn’t quite fit the profile of the Reds’ transfer policy at his age, regardless, a transfer would make sense in my eyes.”

“Jurgen Klopp has more workhorses in his midfield with Jordan Henderson, Fabinho and Naby Keita. He could use an intricate technical player like Thiago well.”

“On the other hand, he will surely have a new contract at Bayern waiting to be signed. I would be surprised if he was not offered a lot to stay.”

The bookies have Liverpool as the players most likely destination.

Who else could Klopp bring in this summer to strengthen an already formidable team?
