Liverpool may be forced into one-way transfer street after fresh Lavia update

Posted by

Liverpool look set to face competition for the potential signing of Southampton’s Romeo Lavia from fellow Premier League outfits Chelsea and Arsenal.

This follows on from the Merseysiders’ recent acquisition of Dominik Szoboszlai after activating the Hungarian’s £60.4m release clause on Sunday 2 July.

“Chelsea are also interested in Romeo Lavia, who is expected to leave Southampton following their relegation from the Premier League,” the Guardian reporter wrote.

“Southampton want £45m for Lavia, who is being targeted by Arsenal and Liverpool.

“The 19-year-old could be too expensive for United.”

At £45m, the former Anderlecht ace shouldn’t prove unaffordable for Jurgen Klopp’s men, though the prospect of competition without the aid of a release clause could force the club into an alternative transfer path.

The extent to which Khephren Thuram – also heavily linked with us – is a more appealing option, of course, depends greatly on how much Nice are prepared to charge and the degree of interest in his services.

Foot Mercator’s Santi Aouna maintains, despite Florian Plettenberg’s claim to the contrary, that Bayern Munich and Thomas Tuchel are big fans of the French U21s international.

Given that the Bavarians are already perceived to have something of a surplus of midfielders – such to the extent that Ryan Gravenberch has publicly complained about his lack of minutes in 2022/23 – however, we find it difficult to believe that Munich will be deemed more desirable a location than Anfield.

It’s an eventuality we’ll have to keep our fingers crossed for should we lose out on Romeo Lavia to a direct rival.

  1. What LFC is supposed to be doing is signing of Conceido of Brighton to be deployed in midfield. That’s guy is versatile as he can as a right full back and deploy Alexander Anorld in midfield. Alternatively Klop should adapt Gomez to play as a holding midfielder and leave Anorld at full back.And sign another center back.

  2. The work that FSG have done is applicable but not enough. FSG must sign a defender like Pavard and deploy Alexander Anorld in midfield and in the process Klop should do Guardiola way by acquainting Gomez with playing as defensive midfielder like Stones at Man.City.Henderson and Fabinho are liabilities.They have no pace and that is too risky to depend on them

  3. Another thing LFC can do is trying to get Walters from Saints on loan with an option to buy.There are central defenders at Southampton that we can ask Southampton to do us a favour by lending a defender on loan.

  4. There are rumours abound that we are looking at Valverde as our DM and he can also fill in as right back.This really would be brilliant with slotting in with Trent. Lavia is young and will be an excellent signing.
