Liverpool are playing the waiting game in the summer transfer window.
The Premier League champions have only added one player so far, Kostas Tsimikas of Olympiacos, with Jurgen Klopp conscious of not overreaching in a summer market like no other.
But with their rivals strengthening fans are desperate for the Reds to press on. Bayern Munich’s Thiago Alcantara is the top choice with discussions had between the club and the Spaniard’s representatives. Thiago is keen for a new challenge with Liverpool one of his preferred destinations. If he arrives there could well be departures, however, with Georginio Wijnaldum of interest to new Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman. We’ll have all the latest throughout the day:
Liverpool youngster Rhian Brewster is reportedly set to move away from Anfield with Sheffield United the most likely destination.
Aston Villa are also said to be interested in the 20-year-old but the Blades are confident of securing Brewster after talks with Liverpool progressed over the weekend, according to the Star.
Brewster impressed at Swansea last season with 11 goals in 22 appearances and it is not out of the question that a loan deal with Sheffield United could be made.

UNITED FEARS OVER SANCHO
Manchester United have fears competition will spike for Jadon Sancho next summer.
ESPN report there are concerns the Red Devils will have to compete with Real Madrid, Barcelona and Liverpool for the England international if they fail to get a deal done before 2021.
Dortmund remain in the same position as months ago, demanding a €120m fee, yet United continue to dither, risking the potential for Sancho joining a rival in a year should they fail to make a breakthrough.

UNITED READY BALE LOAN OFFER
Manchester United could make a loan offer for Gareth Bale to end his Real Madrid nightmare.
The Welsh forward has no future at the Bernabeu and will need game time to resume his career and ensure he is in form for Wales.
The Sun report an initial loan is on the table from United, with a permanent deal an option at the conclusion of the season. Wages will be an issue, unless Real waive the potential for a transfer fee in order to force Bale out and rid themselves of the huge hit on their wage cap.
