Liverpool transfer round-up: Thiago deal on hold, Leeds eye double deal

All eyes will be on Jurgen Klopp’s side come September 12.

Liverpool will be experiencing their first title defence in over 30 years when they face Leeds United in their opening game of the season.

Before then, though, the Reds have several transfer narratives to settle with widespread speculation over potential arrivals and departures.

Recent injury to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in training shows just how unpredictable things can be at the top level of club football.

While Liverpool are particularly well stocked in midfield, unforeseen injuries could force them to act in the transfer market between now and the beginning of the season.

Not only that, but the Reds also have several squad players who will want to shore up their futures before the beginning of the season.

Whether that means staying at Anfield or moving elsewhere remains to be seen but what we do know is that there will continue to be speculation until the window closes on October 5.

Here is your Liverpool transfer rumours round-up.

Leeds plotting double transfer swoop for Reds duo

Leeds United are interested in signing Liverpool striking duo Divock Origi and Rhian Brewster this summer.

The Mirror understands that the Whites are interested in pursuing a move for Origi if their number one target Odsonne Edouard falls through.

In addition, the Metro reports that Marcelo Bielsa’s side are set to join a long list of clubs interested in bringing the highly-rated Brewster on loan for the upcoming season.

Brewster had been mightily impressive on loan in the Championship last season and looks destined for Premier League in 2020/21 with several top-flight sides registering their interest in him.

Thiago move could wait until January

Liverpool could reportedly wait until the January transfer window to sign Bayern Munich’s Thiago Alcantara.

The Reds have been frequently linked with a move for the midfielder but they won’t be able to sign him until they get rid of someone in the same position, according to the Telegraph.

Klopp is believed to be a big admirer of the 29-year-old but there remains uncertainty over whether a move can be possible this summer.

If Liverpool are to land their man, they may have to wait until January when possible departures come clearer.
