Following Saudi Arabia, interest from Turkey... Thiago Alcántara is focused on playing for LiverpoolTransfers

In the summer of 2020, with one year left on his contract with Bayern, former Spanish midfielder Thiago Alcantara decided to move to Liverpool, signing a contract through 2024. However, his surprise passes and well-timed pressing are among the best in the Premier League.

The former Bayern midfielder, who has less than a year left on his contract and is likely to leave the club next summer, received an offer from Saudi Arabia this summer but preferred to stay at Anfield. He will continue to play in the Premier League this season, as many star players have decided to go to the Middle East.

However, the Turkish league, which has a late transfer deadline, made a last-minute attempt to acquire the former Spanish midfielder, and Fenerbahce and Trabzonspor also made concrete offers, according to Fabrizio Romano, an Italian journalist.

Again, Thiago Alcántara was not interested in a move to Turkey and wanted to stay at Liverpool. He has been slowed by injury this season and has yet to play. Also, the midfielders have been upgraded and the competition has become more intense.

It is uncertain how many games he will play, but with Jordan Henderson and James Milner out, he is expected to be one of the leaders in the midfield.

How will the 32-year-old midfielder fare in what will likely be his final season with the club?
