Jurgen Klopp's Reds are still waiting for the signing of Thiago Alcantara to be confirmed, with the midfielder set to complete a move from Bayern Munich imminently. It is understood that Liverpool will pay £20million to sign the Spaniard on a four-year contract with the potential for £5million in add-ons, with Alcantara expected to complete his move from Bayern Munich on Friday.

Liverpool fans have £25m Ismaila Sarr transfer theory as Thiago Alcantara closes in on Reds move

However, a fresh transfer development has also got Liverpool fans talking, with the Reds reportedly making a £25million move to try and sign Sarr from Watford. Reports suggest that the Premier League champions have made a move for the winger, who has been linked with a move away following the Hornets' relegation from the top flight. And that has got Liverpool fans talking as they wait for news of Thiago Alcantara's arrival. Here's what they have been saying. Sarr joined Watford on a five-year contract in August 2019, arriving from Rennes in a club-record deal. He played 30 times for Watford last season in all competitions, scoring six goals. Two of those came against Liverpool as Watford stunned Klopp's men in a 3-0 win against the Reds in February, inflicting their first defeat of the Premier League season.
