Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Liverpool on Thursday, November 19.

The summer transfer window has now closed and attention will begin to turn to January for Premier League champions Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp's side brought in Thiago Alcantara, Diogo Jota and Kostas Tsimikas during the summer, making for one of their busier transfer windows in the last couple of years.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news on possible comings and goings from Anfield.

Thursday morning's Liverpool transfer talk news roundup:

Manchester United 'made four bids for Jadon Sancho'

Manchester United reportedly made four offers for Jadon Sancho during the summer transfer window but were unable to come to an agreement with Borussia Dortmund over a transfer fee.

The England international was strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford over the summer, but the deadline passed with the attacker still at BVB, who are thought to value him in the region of £109m.

According to retired footballer Jan Aage Fjortoft, United failed with four separate bids for the former Manchester City youngster in the recent window.

Fjortoft, who was capped 71 times by Norway during his professional career, made the claim while speaking on Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano's Here We Go podcast.

Sancho is yet to score in six Bundesliga appearances during the 2020-21 campaign, but the 20-year-old has managed two goals and four assists in nine appearances in all competitions.

The attacker - also believed to be a target for Liverpool and Bayern Munich - still has two and a half years left to run on his contract with Lucien Favre's side.

Liverpool, Manchester United 'receive boost in Dayot Upamecano pursuit'

Liverpool and Manchester United have reportedly received a boost in their pursuit of Dayot Upamecano, with Bayern Munich currently unable to sign the central defender.

The 22-year-old is believed to be a transfer target for a number of clubs and could be on the move next summer when a £40m release clause in his RB Leipzig contract comes into play.

Bayern had been strongly linked with the France international and were expected to rival the likes of Liverpool and United for his signature at the end of the 2020-21 campaign.

However, according to Bild, Upamecano, who has scored once in 10 appearances for Leipzig during the 2020-21 campaign, is out of Bayern's price range.

Liverpool have allegedly identified the Frenchman as their leading transfer target, but United also continue to be linked with his services as they search for a new centre-back.

Bayern's need for reinforcements at the back is also strong, though, with David Alaba and Jerome Boateng, as it stands, both out of contract next June.
