Liverpool have agreed a deal to sign midfielder Thiago Alcantara from Bayern Munich on a four-year contract, for at least £20m, plus £5m in add-ons.

He is set to wear the number six shirt at Anfield.

Thiago would be the Liverpool’s second summer signing, after Greece left-back Kostas Tsimikas.

Bayern boss Hansi Flick said at a news conference:

“Thiago is an exceptional player who had huge success here for seven years. He’s a great person and an exceptional professional.

“It was very emotional today when he said goodbye.”

As well as the Champions League title, he has won seven consecutive Bundesliga titles, four German Cups and the Club World Cup.
