Wayne Rooney says ‘it would be great to see’ Liverpool target Thiago Alcantara in the Premier League.

Thiago has been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool throughout the summer, with some reports suggesting he had even  ahead of a move to Anfield

The Premier League champions have reservations over spending £23m or so on a 29-year-old with less than 12 months left on his Bayern Munich deal, however, particularly in the current economic climate.

and  are said to have joined the fray for Thiago and Rooney feels his style of play would be suited to the English game.

‘He almost came to United in 2013 and now Liverpool are linked with him,’ he wrote in his column for .

‘He’s one of the best midfielders around – I just hope he doesn’t go there!

‘He can take the ball, be composed on it, keep things ticking over – and he’ll put his foot in. He’s an all-round midfielder, really, with a bit of everything.

‘He backs up that Bayern press and he drops in between the centre halves to take the ball yet can also join in when they’re playing around the other box too.

‘He’s a great player. It would be great to see him in the Premier League, actually.’

Liverpool have been active in the transfer market already this summer, bringing in Olympiakos left-back Kostas Tsimikas for £11.75m.

The Greek played his first game for the club in a pre-season friendly victory over Stuttgart on Saturday and was set by Jurgen Klopp in the aftermath.

The manager added: “He is a pretty quick player and pretty confident, how you will hear in his interview, but he is a good player – a really good player – and he did well.”

Gossip: Man Utd give up on £208m Sancho; Arsenal eye Thiago

Man Utd have put their pursuit of Jadon Sancho ‘on hold for a year’ due to the costs. Arsenal want Liverpool target Thiago.

 

SHOCK AND INDEED HORROR
It turns out Borussia Dortmund weren’t messing around. They were prepared to do business when it came to Jadon Sancho, but only before August 10. Man Utd decided they were to ignore that deadline. They were not.

As a result, their Sancho pursuit is ‘on hold for a year’. The  do the bidding of Ed Woodward by listing the ‘unrealistic’ £108m valuation, the extra £100m in wages and agent fees that ‘would also shatter the club’s pay structure,’ and the overall belief that the transfer market and salaries ‘will reset’ this summer as a result of the global pandemic.

Either that or Sancho has an incredible season and his price rockets further while Man Utd run Daniel James into the ground.

Simon Mullock even includes a line about how the executive vice-chairman ‘has worked hard to get the highest wage bill in the Premier League under control over the last 12 months’.

His exclusives are , mind.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ‘will be disappointed’ and Man Utd understand Real Madrid, Barcelona, PSG, Liverpool and Chelsea will all be interested next summer, compared to the ‘free run’ they had this time around. Time to look at again.

 

ADAMA LEAVE
Adama Traore might be worth a look, with Nuno Espirito Santo deciding he would rather sell him than Raul Jimenez ‘to raise his own transfer funds’.

Wolves ‘are tightening the purse strings’ and have told the ‘frustrated’ manager to get creative when it comes to increasing his budget. say he is ‘desperate’ to keep Jimenez ‘but is prepared to listen to offers’ for Traore.

Man Utd have been before but Liverpool and Manchester City are the favourites. Both consider Traore to be ‘an impact player’ and Wolves hope to attract ‘substantial bids’ for him. They feel they already have an ideal replacement in .

Traore has been valued as high as £70m or so in recent months yet we are told that Wolves ‘now rate him at more than double’ the £18m they signed him for in 2018. That’s pretty vague.

 

THI OFF
In the strangest news of the weekend, Liverpool could miss out on Thiago Alcantara to Arsenal.

The report that the Gunners ‘have checked on’ the midfielder and could capitalise on the ‘reluctant’ stance shown by their Premier League rivals, who don’t fancy paying £23m and ‘high wages’ for a 29-year-old who can discuss leaving as a free agent in January. anyway.

Arsenal are also unlikely to match the demands of Bayern Munich and Thiago himself, but the departures of Lucas Torreira and Mo Elneny could open this most bizarre of doors.
