Rio Ferdinand says Thiago would be a ‘dream’ signing for Liverpool as his creativity and intelligence offers them a different option in midfield.

The Spaniard is said to be keen on a new challenge after seven years at Bayern Munich.

Jurgen Klopp is keen on bringing the 29-year-old to Anfield, but may have to offload players first before that can happen.

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand believes Thiago has all of the right attributes to add a different dimension to Klopp’s midfield.

‘Great signing,’ Ferdinand told BT Sport. ‘He is a conductor, somebody who controls the tempo of the game, he’s got a wing mirror so he can see behind him, can see all angles, play every pass in the game.

‘Intelligent player, he speaks the language which is an important part of it as well.

‘He’d be a dream to have for someone like Liverpool. He’s the type of player they probably haven’t got.’

Liverpool stormed to their first league title in over 30 years, amassing 99 points and losing just three times.

Klopp’s side is built with hardworking midfielders to allow their forwards to flourish.

Despite Thiago’s excellent technical abilities, Ferdinand isn’t sure if he would automatically start for the Reds.

The former England defender added: ‘Does he walk into Liverpool’s team? They are a formidable team, you take someone out and you’re going to lose something, does he give you much more?

‘He gives you something different.’
