Liverpool midfielder Thiago has NOT been the subject of a £10.35 million (€12m) bid from Al-Ahli.
Reports emanating from France on Thursday suggested that an offer for the Spaniard had arrived from the Saudi Pro League this week.
However, This Is Anfield understands that the Reds have yet to receive any firm bids for their No. 6.
As such, it is thought the club’s preference would be to keep hold of Thiago for the final year of his deal before allowing him to depart for nothing next summer.
Rather than making further sales, the Reds’ focus is currently on bolstering their midfield by dipping into the transfer market.
They have seen three separate bids turned down by the Saints, who are hoping to hold out for a £50 million payday for the teenager.
However, the expectation remains that the Ecuadorean will end up at Chelsea, who have had several bids rejected already this summer.
