Thiago Alcantara

Arsenal is prepared to battle Liverpool for Bayern Munich’s Thiago Alcantara, according to the Daily Mail.

The Bundesliga giants are willing to sell Alcantara this season.

The 29-year-old’s contract ends next year, so Bayern doesn’t want him to leave as a free agent.

Alcantara was closely linked to the transfer to Liverpool, with Jurgen Klopp, a great admirer of the Spaniard.

The Reds may now be forced to step up their pursuit of the player, after Arsenal made enquiries.
