Wijnaldum has been linked with a move to Barca but Klopp is happy to retain all his players this season

Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp has stressed that Thiago Alcantara’s highly-anticipated arrival at Anfield does not mean the club will be forced to sell a player in the current transfer window.

British media reported the Premier League champion have agreed a transfer fee worth 20m pounds ($25.91m) plus five million pounds in add-ons with Bayern for Thiago, who is expected to sign a four-year deal with Liverpool.

Thiago bid farewell to Bayern in an open letter here Friday, with Klopp hinting that an announcement confirming the signing is imminent.

Thiago will join an already bulging Liverpool midfield alongside Jordan Henderson, Georginio Wijnaldum, Fabinho, Naby Keita, James Milner, Curtis Jones, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Xherdan Shaqiri and Marko Grujic.

Wijnaldum has been linked with a move to Barcelona but Klopp is happy to retain all his players this season.

Thiago will be Liverpool’s second recruit in the close season, a stark contrast to Sunday’s opponents Chelsea, who have spent more than 200m pounds on half a dozen new signings as Frank Lampard rebuilds his squad.

Although Klopp recently said Liverpool were different from “clubs owned by countries and oligarchs”, he maintains he has no problems with how Lampard and Chelsea do their business.
