Romeo Lavia appears to be target No.1 for Liverpool at this point in the transfer window but it’s looking like a struggle for us to reach Southampton’s lofty valuation for the midfielder.
We may have seen somewhat of a boost though as Sky Sports News have reported: “He’s not in the squad tonight in EFL Cup action against Gillingham, he’s not part of the squad.
“He was part of the squad for their Championship opener when they won 2-1, as an unused substitute”.
Whether this is down to squad rotation for the cup match, or because an Anfield deal is close – only time will tell.
With a matter of days remaining until our season begins at Stamford Bridge though, Jurgen Klopp will be eager to get his business completed quickly.
