Barcelona are eyeing a move for former club player Thiago Alcantara.
The Spanish midfielder struggled with injuries since his move to Anfield in the summer of 2020.
He has been unavailable for Liverpool for the last 10 games with a hip problem.
The ex-Bayern Munich star’s fitness continues to trouble him this season and Liverpool have won only 4 out of those 10 games without him.
Thiago has missed 57 games due to injuries and he has not yet completed three seasons with the Reds.
The 31-year-old used to play for Barcelona’s senior team between 2009 and 2013 and was also a youth player for three years.
According to AS, the Catalan giants are keen to reunite with their former academy graduate this summer.
He made over 100 senior appearances for the Catalan outfit scoring 11 goals and providing 20 assists before making his move to Bayern Munich.
Despite his injuries, Thiago is still one of the most technical midfielders in Europe and his experience and quality can be an attest to that.
It is definitely not a bad idea for Barcelona to sign Thiago on a short-term contract.
