Thiago Alcantara has agreed personal terms with Liverpool after Jürgen Klopp gave the go-ahead for the transfer, according to reports from Germany.

Thiago won the German league and cup double with Bayern this season, but is now believed to be keen to move on after winning the title in each of his seven Bundesliga seasons.
