(Video) Sky Sports News provide Lavia update as Belgian misses cup tie

Posted by

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.
