Bayern Munich are reportedly expected Liverpool to submit a new bid for Thiago Alcantara in the near future, according to reports. The claims would suggest the Reds have already lodged an offer for the midfielder who is available for just £25million this summer.
Liverpool have been closely linked with a move for the Champions League winner in the German press.
It started after there were rumours in the Bayern dressing room that Thiago wanted to move to Anfield.
He is said to have offered his house to his team-mates as he looks to embark on a new adventure.
Thiago has just one year remaining on his current deal but has told Bayern he will not be penning a new contract.
