Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Liverpool on Monday, December 7.
The summer transfer window has now closed and attention will begin to turn to January for Premier League champions Liverpool.
Jurgen Klopp’s side brought in Thiago Alcantara, Diogo Jota and Kostas Tsimikas during the summer, making for one of their busier transfer windows in the last couple of years.
Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news on possible comings and goings from Anfield.
Monday morning’s Liverpool transfer talk news roundup:
Wolverhampton Wanderers pair Ruben Neves and Fabio Silva have reportedly emerged as potential transfer targets for Liverpool.
With several injuries occurring in defence, Jurgen Klopp will prioritise a move for a new centre-back if he enters the January transfer market.
However, according to the Daily Star, the Merseyside giants are also contemplating doing business with Wolves for the second time in a year.
After Diogo Jota left Molineux for Anfield last summer, it is claimed that Klopp is interested in agreeing a deal for Neves.
The Portugal international has just two-and-a-half years remaining on his contract, and the longer it takes to pen an extension will only lead to speculation regarding his future.
Silva, who only joined Wolves earlier this year, is also said to be on Liverpool’s radar having previously worked with Liverpool coach Vitor Matos.
Chelsea are reportedly determined to bring Bayern Munich defender David Alaba to the club during the January transfer window.
The 28-year-old has still not penned a new contract at the Allianz Arena, and as it stands, he will be available on a free transfer at the end of the 2020-21 campaign.
Alaba, if his situation remains unchanged, could enter into contract talks with foreign clubs at the start of 2021, and a number of teams are said to be interested in his services.
However, according to Bild, Chelsea want to sign him in January and hope that Bayern will be tempted to negotiate a mid-season deal with the Blues rather than risk losing him on a free transfer next summer.
Juventus, Liverpool, Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and Barcelona have also all been credited with an interest in the Austria international.
The versatile defender has made 15 appearances for Bayern during the 2020-21 campaign, while he has represented the Champions League holders over 400 times in all competitions.
