Sunday's Liverpool transfer talk news roundup: Thiago Alcantara, Neymar, Talles Magno

Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Liverpool on Sunday, August 16.

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.

Sunday morning's Liverpool transfer talk news roundup:

Manchester United 'agree £10.8m deal for Filip Stevanovic'

Partizan teenager Filip Stevanovic is reportedly heading for Manchester United in a €12m (£10.8m) deal.

The 17-year-old enjoyed an impressive 2019-20 campaign for his Serbian club, scoring nine times and contributing three times in 35 appearances in all competitions.

Stevanovic played twice against United in the group stages of this season's Europa League and has previously been linked with Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea.

However, according to Republika, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have agreed a €12m (£10.8m) deal for the youngster, who could officially arrive in the summer of 2021.

The report claims that Stevanovic is likely to spend another 12 months on loan with Partizan before linking up with the Premier League side next summer.

Bayern Munich and Real Madrid have also previously been linked with a player who largely operated as a left-sided attacker during the 2019-20 season.

The Serbia Under-19 international has scored nine times and contributed four assists in 42 appearances for Savo Milosevic's side in all competitions.

Liverpool 'open talks with Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara'

Liverpool have reportedly made their first official contact with Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara over a possible summer switch to Anfield.

The Premier League champions have been linked with a move for the 29-year-old for a number of weeks now, although a formal approach had not previously occurred and more recent reports poured doubt on the likelihood of a deal taking place.

However, German outlet Bild reports that Liverpool have now begun negotiations, with Bayern having already publicly admitted that Thiago wants to leave.

The two clubs are thought to be some way apart on a transfer fee, with Liverpool having initially been hopeful of a £20m deal but Bayern wanting at least £30m.

Both parties are now set for another round of talks as Jurgen Klopp's side look to make a second summer signing following the arrival of left-back Kostas Tsimikas.

Thiago is part of the Bayern Munich side which has made it all the way to the Champions League quarter-finals, with the Spain international making 37 appearances across all competitions so far this season.
