Here is the daily roundup of Liverpool and Manchester United news, gossip and transfer speculation.
Manchester United have reportedly opened talks with Liverpool target Steven Bergwijn, about a possible move away from PSV Eindhoven.
The highly-rated 21-year old has started the season in terrific form for the Dutch giants and already has nine goals and nine assists to his name, with his performances catching the eye of Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.
It is no secret the Reds boss is keen to add something to his attack this transfer window, and recent reports suggested he was eyeing up a £25 million deal to land Bergwijn towards the end of the transfer window.
However, according to the Sunday Express, United look set to win the race for the Dutchman and have contacted PSV to discuss a deal in excess of £25 million, as Oole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to add to his exciting attack.
Solskjaer has enjoyed a great start to life as United boss and won his opening eight games, but he knows an injury to one of his attackers could be a serious problem in their quest to get back into a top four spot this season.
Reports have claimed Manchester United are keen to sign £50 million rated Cagliari star Nicolo Barella.
The 21-year-old Italy international, who is under contract at the Serie A side until 2022, has been linked with Chelsea in recent days as Maurizio Sarri seeks a replacement for Cesc Fabregas.
Fabregas is heading to Monaco and Sarri has already admitted that he may need a signing this month, as the Spaniard will leave him with only five midfielders.
And Barella, who is regarded as an outstanding talent, has become a top transfer target after another impressive start to the new season, in which his performances has attracted interest from a whole host of big clubs.
But according to reports on the Sky Sports website, United are poised to beat the Blues to the £50m signature of the Italian star Barella, who has admitted that he is happy at the Italian club.

Fresh reports have again claimed Chelsea are lining up a massive move for Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen, but face a fight with Manchester United.
Eriksen has had another outstanding season at Spurs and has become one of the best creative midfielders in the Premier League right now, but there has been some speculation that he could leave the club in the coming windows after failing to agree a contract with Spurs.
It is believed that Spurs and Eriksen cannot agree on the wages, as the Denmark International would like to sign a deal that takes him to the upper end of the Spurs wage budget, While Spurs do not want to break the back to offer him a new deal.
That has led to speculation that United, Real Madrid and Chelsea are all interested in trying to prise Eriksen away, as all have been long-time admirers of the Spurs man.
And now reports on the Daily Express website has claimed United and Chelsea are ready to push their rivals in a bid to keep Eriksen in the Premier League, with Maurizio Sarri and Ole gunnar Solskjaer already both looking to imrpove their midfields.
However, Spurs are in no mood to do business and recent reports have claimed Spurs Chairman Daniel Levy has stuck a record £225 million price tag on the head of Eriksen in hope of warding off any interest in one of the clubs best players, despite the fact that he only has 18 months remaining on his current Spurs contract.
