Danny Murphy believes Jurgen Klopp ‘deserves a medal’ for securing the signing of Thiago Alcantara for Liverpool this summer.

Former Liverpool midfielder Murphy believes the £20million deal which saw the former Barcelona star swap Bayern Munich for Anfield was an ‘absolute steal’.

Thiago’s final game for the Bundesliga giants saw him lift the Champions League title and he has now arrived on English soil to represent the Premier League champions.

And Murphy thinks he will prove to be a ‘brilliant’ signing for the Reds and that their fans will ‘adore’ him.

‘I think Thiago is an unbelievable acquisition because he is one of the only players in Europe who could improve Liverpool’s midfield,’ Murphy told the Football Index Podcast.

‘Even at 29 years old, he will give Liverpool at least three or four years and it was a brilliant bit of business for the fee involved as well.

‘I first watched Thiago at Barcelona and the game looked effortless for him. Thiago is a midfielder that can dictate the tempo of a match like [Paul] Scholes used to, and there aren’t many of them about.

‘Thiago has the ability to always have time on the ball because of the movement he does to create space. He very rarely loses the ball when he is pressed because of his awareness.

‘Thiago is an absolute steal at that price. Klopp deserves a medal for convincing him because the Liverpool fans are going to adore him.’

Defending champions Liverpool face bitter local rivals and early Premier League leaders Everton this weekend.
