According to Athletic's news, Arsenal had a chance to sign Thiago.
Thiago joined Liverpool from Bayern Munich last week. He made his debut in Liverpool and the Premier League in the Reds 2-0 victory over Chelsea last Sunday.
The report claimed that Bayern Munich had recommended Thiago to many teams, Arsenal got the opportunity to buy, but they finally decided not to sign the Spanish international.
In the midfield position, Arsenal renewed Ceballos from Real Madrid this summer, while Torreira is very likely to leave the team.
Thiago’s transfer fee is 30 million euros, and he signs with Liverpool until 2024.
