Tuesday's Liverpool transfer talk news roundup: Rhian Brewster, Loris Karius, Alisson Becker

Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Liverpool on Tuesday, September 29.

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.

Tuesday morning's Liverpool transfer talk news roundup:

Sheffield United 'include £40m buy-back clause in Rhian Brewster bid'

Sheffield United have reportedly made progress with their bid to sign Liverpool forward Rhian Brewster.

While a number of clubs are interested in the England Under-21 international, few are prepared to consider including a buy-back clause which could benefit Liverpool in the future.

That stance has allegedly led to the likes of Crystal Palace and Brighton & Hove Albion now only being regarded as outsiders for the youngster.

According to The Sun, Sheffield United are prepared to pay £17m for Brewster, as well as giving Liverpool the option to re-sign their academy graduate for £40m at a later date.

The Blades have been forced to act after failing to find the back of the net in Premier League fixtures against Wolverhampton Wanderers, Aston Villa and Leeds United respectively.

One potential stumbling block is Brewster's desire to return to London, where he lived until 2015 before leaving Chelsea for Merseyside.

Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius is reportedly close to sealing another loan move away from the club.

The 27-year-old spent the majority of the past two seasons with Turkish outfit Besiktas, but that agreement was terminated early due to a row over unpaid wages.

Alisson Becker is now the undisputed number one at Anfield, leaving Karius surplus to requirements - as he has been at Liverpool since making two costly errors in the 2018 Champions League final.

The Reds had been hoping to offload Karius on a permanent basis this summer, but no clubs were willing to meet his £6m asking price.

Goal reports that the German shot-stopper will instead leave on loan, with Union Berlin thought to have beaten city rivals Hertha Berlin and Ligue 1 outfit Montpellier in the race for his signature.

Liverpool are hopeful that a good season for Karius elsewhere could help to drive his price up further before selling him next summer, with his contract due to expire in 2022.
