The summer transfer window has now begun, with rumours and speculation continuing to swirl as Liverpool eye possible reinforcements.
Jurgen Klopp's champions have not been particularly busy during recent windows, but that has not stopped the rumour mill from linking them with additions.
Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news on possible comings and goings from Anfield.
Friday morning's Liverpool transfer talk news roundup:
Liverpool have reportedly made their first official contact with Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara over a possible summer switch to Anfield.
The Premier League champions have been linked with a move for the 29-year-old for a number of weeks now, although a formal approach had not previously occurred and more recent reports poured doubt on the likelihood of a deal taking place.
However, German outlet Bild reports that Liverpool have now begun negotiations, with Bayern having already publicly admitted that Thiago wants to leave.
The two clubs are thought to be some way apart on a transfer fee, with Liverpool having initially been hopeful of a £20m deal but Bayern wanting at least £30m.
Both parties are now set for another round of talks as Jurgen Klopp's side look to make a second summer signing following the arrival of left-back Kostas Tsimikas.
Thiago is part of the Bayern Munich side which has made it all the way to the Champions League quarter-finals, with the Spain international making 37 appearances across all competitions so far this season.
Liverpool reportedly have no interest in signing Vasco da Gama starlet Talles Magno, despite recent reports to the contrary.
Speculation from Brazil last week claimed that the Premier League champions had made contact with the 18-year-old and were closing in on a deal to bring him to Anfield.
However, the Evening Standard reports that those rumours are false and that Liverpool do not have plans to pursue Magno, who has been dubbed 'the next Neymar'.
The highly-rated forward was part of Brazil's Under-17 World Cup-winning squad last year but is yet to earn a call-up for the senior side, meaning that a work permit would be difficult to secure for a switch to the Premier League.
Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus, Lazio and Roma have also been credited with an interest in bringing Magno to Europe.
