Thiago Alcántara expected to leave this summer...No interest from Liverpool for Joshua Kimmich or Nicolo Barella Transfers

In the summer of 2020, he joined Liverpool from Bayern Munich.Perhaps unable to withstand the intensity of the Premier League, he was repeatedly injured each season, making him hard to calculate throughout the season.

This season, he played only five minutes against Arsenal and is currently out with a muscular problem.

His contract with Liverpool is nearing expiration, and this June he will become a free transfer, allowing him to move to another club without a transfer fee.

The former Spanish midfielder, who was no longer an absolute force in last summer’s transfer market as he strengthened the midfield, is almost set to leave the team, according to Neil Jones.

The reporter further referred to the reinforcement plan and expressed his negative opinion that it is unlikely that the team will start to acquire midfielders in their late 20s, such as Joshua Kimmich and Nicolo Barella, who have been rumored to be in the market, and opined that it will not be an aggressive reinforcement.

“I would be very sceptical about links between Liverpool and players such as Joshua Kimmich and Nicolo Barella. Good players, no question. Great players actually.”

“But Liverpool are not short on midfielders, and with the exception of Endo and Thiago Alcantara, who is almost certainly leaving in the summer, they are all younger than those two.”

“The potential of Curtis Jones, Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai, Harvey Elliott and Ryan Gravenberch is obvious, and with the likes of Stefan Bajcetic and Bobby Clark also emerging, it is hard to see the need for a 29- year-old Kimmich or a 27-year-old Barella.”

“I personally feel Liverpool’s squad planning this summer will be about fine tuning, rather than overhauling.”

“They were happy with the midfield business they did last summer, so expect attention to switch to other areas – central defence, full-back and the forward line – now.”
