Liverpool transfer news: Thiago interest dwindling, Tsimikas eyed up, Brooks a midfield target

Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Liverpool on Sunday, August 9.

Liverpool continue to be linked with a number of players as they prepare for their first ever Premier League title defence.

The Reds enjoyed an incredible 2019-20 campaign and will now be looking to strengthen ahead of the new season, which begins in five weeks' time.

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

Sunday morning's Liverpool transfer talk news roundup:

Liverpool 'not interested in Thiago Alcantara'

Liverpool had been considered the strong favourites to sign Thiago Alcantara from Bayern Munich following last week's confirmation that he intends to leave the club.

Paris Saint-Germain have since registered an interest in the holding midfielder, however, and the Liverpool Echo claims that the Reds' interest is dwindling.

Jurgen Klopp's side are not actively perusing a deal, it is suggested, opening the door for French champions PSG to pounce.

The report comes after it was recently alleged that Liverpool would have to sell at least one more player to accommodate Thiago's arrival.

Liverpool, Leicester City enquire over Olympiacos left-back Kostas Tsimikas?

Olympiacos left-back Kostas Tsimikas has caught the eye of a number of clubs following an impressive campaign for the Greek outfit.

The Daily Mail reports that Liverpool are the latest to register an interest in the 24-year-old, who has under two years to run on his contract.

The Reds are seeking cover for Andrew Robertson and have already been tipped to move for Norwich City's versatile defender Jamal Lewis.

Leicester City are expected to provide competition for Tsimikas should they lose Ben Chilwell to fellow Premier League side Chelsea.

Liverpool weighing up £35m bid for Bournemouth midfielder David Brooks?

Liverpool have already moved on Adam Lallana this summer and fringe player Xherdan Shaqiri is likely to be the next to depart Anfield.

That frees up a midfield spot and, according to The Sun, Bournemouth's David Brooks has been eyed up.

The Wales international featured just seven times in the Premier League last season due to an ankle problem, though he impressed in 2018-19 with seven goals and five assists.

Bournemouth are looking to cash in following their recent relegation to the Championship, yet it may still take a bid of £35m to land Brooks's signature.
