Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara would relish the chance to play under Jurgen Klopp but Liverpool have no plans to strengthen their midfield in this transfer window.
According to Sky Sports, Thiago is set to be left frustrated, with a move to Anfield unlikely to materialise.
However, if Liverpool do alter their approach and look to bring in a midfielder then the 29-year-old will be one of the players that they consider.
With a year remaining on his contract at Bayern, Thiago has reportedly informed the German club that he is looking to move on.
Bayern are demanding £30million for the Spain international, but it appears that Thiago will have to look at alternative options to Liverpool as he considers his next destination.
Liverpool have a host of midfield options at their disposal, with Jordan Henderson, Fabinho, Naby Keita, Georginio Wijnaldum, James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Curtis Jones all available to Klopp.
Therefore, there is little need for them to bring in a new midfielder to add to their numbers in that area of the pitch.
However, even though they won the Premier League title, there were times when Liverpool lacked creativity in midfield this season.
Thiago is vastly experienced and has won seven league titles with Bayern to add to the two he won with Barcelona.
A superb passer, Thiago is a highly creative player and can also operate slightly deeper in midfield if required.
Liverpool have already made one signing this summer, bringing in left back Kostas Tsimikas to provide cover for Andy Robertson.
Last summer Klopp’s side didn’t bring in a single experienced outfield player, although they did sign Takumi Minamino in January.
