Jurgen Klopp has revealed that Liverpool’s new signing of Thiago Alcântara could play against title rivals Chelsea on Sunday.
The 29-year-old has moved to Anfield for a fee worth £25million including add-ons.
‘'Great! Absolutely great. I’m really happy that it finally worked out and we could just do it, ‘' Klopp told Liverpoolfc.com.
‘'So I’m really happy to bring this wonderful person in as an add-on to the squad, which is just good for football reasons – but for all the other reasons as well. So, yeah, absolutely happy that he’s here.'’
It might not be long before Liverpool fans see the Spain international in action as Klopp has hinted he could be involved against Frank Lampard's side on Sunday.
‘'I didn’t make the squad now for Sunday. We will see what we can do. I didn’t meet him now, we had only phone calls and exchanged messages.
‘'So, let’s have a look how he feels. Around a transfer like this the days are pretty busy with things you usually don’t do. If he looks alright, we will find the right place for him.'’
