Tuesday's Liverpool transfer talk news roundup: Divock Origi, Jadon Sancho, Gareth Bale

Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Liverpool on Tuesday, September 15.

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:

Liverpool 'willing to accept £14m for Divock Origi'

Liverpool have reportedly set Divock Origi's asking price at £14m amid speculation of an exit for the attacker before the end of the summer transfer window.

While Origi played a crucial role in Liverpool's Champions League triumph in 2019, the Belgium international has remained as a fringe member of Jurgen Klopp's squad.

Although the German still values having the 25-year-old at Anfield, it appears that the Merseyside giants are open to a sale.

According to Turkish journalist Ekrem Konur, Origi will be allowed to leave Liverpool for a fee in the region of £14m.

Konur claims that Fenerbahce are currently ahead of Aston Villa, Newcastle United, Brighton & Hove Albion and Fulham in the race for the player's signature.

Liverpool may be prepared to consider a loan agreement, providing that it includes a mandatory option to buy in 2021.

Manchester United 'concerned about Jadon Sancho competition next year'

Manchester United are reportedly concerned about the level of competition there could be to sign Jadon Sancho next year if they miss out on a deal this summer.

Sancho has been United's number one target throughout the ongoing transfer window, but Borussia Dortmund have so far refused to budge on their asking price of £108m.

Recent reports have suggested that the Red Devils are considering other options to the 20-year-old, including a loan move for Real Madrid outcast Gareth Bale.

However, ESPN reports that any delay in signing Sancho could result in much stiffer competition for his signature next summer, with many of Europe's bigger clubs reluctant to spend at the moment due to the knock-on effect of coronavirus.

The report claims that Real Madrid, Barcelona and Liverpool are among the clubs who could move for Sancho in 2021, and that the England international would be open to joining those teams.

Dortmund boss Lucien Favre today reiterated that he is planning for the 2020-21 campaign with Sancho in his ranks.
