Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Liverpool on Saturday, August 22.

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.

Saturday morning's Liverpool transfer talk news roundup:

Wolverhampton Wanderers 'willing to sell Adama Traore this summer'

Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly prepared to listen to offers for Adama Traore this summer.

The 24-year-old enjoyed an impressive 2019-20 campaign at club level, scoring six times and registering 12 assists in 54 appearances in all competitions.

Liverpool and Manchester City have both recently been credited with an interest in the former Barcelona youngster, who still has three years left to run on his contract at Molineux.

According to the Daily Mail, Wolves are not under pressure to sell the attacker this summer but would 'consider high offers' for him ahead of the transfer deadline at the start of October.

The report claims that Nuno Espirito Santo's side value Traore in the region of £70m despite the fact that he is not always an automatic starter for the Premier League club.

The former Spain Under-21 international has scored seven times and registered 15 assists in 90 outings for Wolves since arriving from Middlesbrough in August 2018.

Ronald Koeman 'wants to bring Georginio Wijnaldum to Barcelona'

New Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman has reportedly earmarked Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum as a potential signing during this summer's transfer window.

Wijnaldum's existing deal at Anfield is due to expire next June, and it is understood that talks over a possible extension with the Premier League champions are yet to take place.

According to AD, Koeman - recently confirmed as Quique Setien's successor at Camp Nou - has urged the 29-year-old not to pen a new deal with Jurgen Klopp's side ahead of a potential move to Camp Nou.

The report claims that Barca could attempt to sign the midfielder this summer or wait until January 2021, when they would be able to open talks over a pre-contract, providing that the Dutchman does not agree a new deal.

Wijnaldum - a key player for the Netherlands under Koeman - scored six times in 47 appearances for Liverpool during the 2019-20 campaign.

The former Feyenoord youngster arrived at Anfield from Newcastle United in July 2016.
