Fabinho believes Thiago will add something 'exceptional' to Liverpool's midfield.
The 29-year-old has impressed Fabinho, who thinks his new teammate can take the Reds to another level this season.
The Brazilian told the Liverpool Echo: "It's true [that] competition for places is high in midfield.
"Ever since I arrived here, the midfield is where the manager rotates the most in games.
"Maybe it's because it is where the players have to put in the most effort, run the most kilometres during games.
"Our squad is very strong but we know that the signing of quality players is a plus for this team.
"Thiago's arrival will be really positive and he's a player coming from an exceptional season at Bayern Munich last year.
"He's an experienced player who inspires confidence given everything he has achieved.
"He can also add something to our team, something we didn't have before. The quality of his passing is exceptional.
"He's someone that receives the ball really well between the lines. So I think his arrival, both his and Diogo Jota's, are going to be really important for us."
