Sunday's Liverpool transfer talk news roundup: Thiago Alcantara, Dani Ceballos, Divock Origi

Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Liverpool on Sunday, August 23.

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.

Sunday 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.

Liverpool pair Divock Origi and Rhian Brewster have reportedly emerged as potential transfer targets for Leeds United.

Ahead of their return to the Premier League, the Yorkshire giants are eager to strengthen in several areas of the pitch, including in attack after only Patrick Bamford reached double figures last season.

According to The Mirror, this has resulted in Origi and Brewster both being added to Marcelo Bielsa's shortlist.

Despite featuring on 40 occasions last season, just 13 of Origi's appearances came from the starting lineup, involvement which has left the Belgium international to consider his future.

Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp is currently contemplating whether to keep academy graduate Brewster at Anfield for the upcoming campaign or allow the 20-year-old to spend a year on loan at another Premier League side.

Given the financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic, Liverpool are unlikely to allow both players to move away from the club in the coming weeks.
