Thiago Alcantara will wear the No.6 jersey for Liverpool, when he completes his move from Bayern Munich, according to the UK Times.
The Premier League champions are on the verge of closing a deal for the midfielder, after agreeing a €30million (£27.2m) fee.
The 29-year-old has agreed to sign a four-year contract with the Reds and the midfielder will take the vacant No.6 shirt.
Liverpool’s No.6 was worn for six years by Dejan Lovren, who left this summer to join Zenit.
Thiago, meanwhile, has worn the No.6 for Bayern since he was signed from Barcelona in 2013.
During his time in Germany, Thiago has won seven Bundesliga titles and ended his stint this summer by helping the club win the Champions League.
