Wednesday's Liverpool transfer talk news roundup: Thiago Alcantara, Harry Wilson, David Brooks

Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Liverpool on Wednesday, August 26.

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.

Wednesday morning's Liverpool transfer talk news roundup:

Bayern Munich 'lower asking price for Liverpool target Thiago Alcantara'

Liverpool have reportedly received a huge boost in their pursuit of Thiago Alcantara as Bayern Munich have lowered their asking price for the midfielder.

Bayern will allow Thiago to depart this summer as he enters the final season of his contract, despite being an integral part of their treble-winning success this term.

The Reds have so far been reluctant to match Bayern's £36m valuation, but The Athletic claims that the German giants are now willing to accept an offer of £27m.

Bayern are said to have taken the decision as they do not want to risk the ex-Barcelona ace leaving for nothing in less than a year's time.

Thiago has spent the past seven years at the Allianz Arena, winning 16 trophies in that time, including the Champions League in what could be his final game for the club.

Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara 'certain to join Liverpool'

Thiago Alcantara is reportedly "certain" to join Liverpool after helping Bayern Munich to Champions League glory.

The Spanish midfielder was one of the stars of the show as Bayern beat Paris Saint-Germain 1-0 in Sunday's final to seal a treble.

Despite being an integral part of Bayern's first team this season, the German giants have opened the door for Thiago to move on this summer.

German publication Der Spiegel claims that Liverpool remain the strong favourites to sign the 29-year-old, who is into the final season of his contract.

Bayern head coach Hansi Flick joked after the PSG match that Thiago wanted to stay at the Allianz Arena, but the report indicates that FCB have no intention of standing in his way.

However, the Reds must first agree to match Bayern's full £30m asking price for the holding midfielder.
