Monday morning's Liverpool transfer talk news roundup:

Arsenal to battle Liverpool for Thiago Alcantara?

Arsenal could reportedly lock horns with Liverpool for the signature of Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara during this summer's transfer window.

The 29-year-old is out of contract at the Allianz Arena next June and is widely expected to leave the German champions ahead of next season in search of pastures new.

Liverpool have been strongly linked with the Spain international, who has scored three times and registered two assists in 39 appearances for the Champions League finalists this season.

However, according to the Daily Mail, Arsenal have now made an enquiry as they consider the possibility of signing the experienced midfielder in the current market.

The report claims that Bayern want £23m for the former Barcelona youngster but could be forced to lower their asking price if they wish to sell him before the October 5 deadline.

Mikel Arteta's side, meanwhile, are said to be in talks with Real Madrid over another loan for Dani Ceballos.

Ronald Koeman 'keen to bring Calvin Stengs to Barcelona'

New Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman is reportedly keen on bringing AZ attacker Calvin Stengs to Camp Nou during this summer's transfer window.

Koeman handed the 21-year-old his Netherlands debut last November, while a successful 2019-20 campaign saw the Dutchman score 10 times and register 12 assists in 42 appearances at club level.

According to Sky Sports News, the new Barca manager has recommended Stengs to the board and is keen to secure a deal for the attacker ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

Stengs, who came through the youth system at AZ, has scored 17 times and registered 18 assists in 74 appearances for Arne Slot's side since breaking into the first team.

Barca have also been linked with two more Dutch internationals since Koeman's arrival, with Lyon's Memphis Depay and Liverpool's Georginio Wijnaldum both said to be targets.

Meanwhile, a number of first-team players have allegedly been placed on the transfer list.
