About Football Express UK

Amidst suggestions that they are exploring other targets, Liverpool is yet to make a third offer for Southampton midfielder Romeo Lavia. Nevertheless, they are “not in a mood to give up”. Lavia was a member of Southampton’s matchday squad for their Friday 2-1 victory over Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship opener. However he was in the bench with his talent unused.

Liverpool are keen to sign Romeo Lavia in their third attempt

Romeo Lavia, a young defensive midfielder whom Liverpool are still in negotiations with Southampton over, has been predicted by Fabrizio Romano to be their next acquisition. When asked who Liverpool’s upcoming signing would be, Romano responded:

“I keep insisting on Romeo Lavia and I keep believing that Romeo Lavia is going to be the next signing.”

According to Het Laatste Nieuws, Liverpool and Southampton “continue to argue” about how much they value Lavia. As per reports, the south coast club are demanding £50 million. Liverpool “don’t want to go that far,” but despite the fact that another offer “has not yet been sent”. However it seems probable that one will come in soon. According to reports, Lavia “really wants” to sign on and has even agreed to personal conditions in advance of a potential transfer. There is still no agreement between two parties yet. Importantly, There is less than a week before Liverpool travels to Chelsea to kick off the Premier League season.

Thiago Alcantara and Stefan Bajcetic’s return to training, who both missed the trip to Singapore, was welcomed by Klopp. Moreover their recovery is crucial as they can resolve Liverpool’s midfield issues to some extent. Southampton already rejected two bids for Lavia. The second was for £41 million. Thus, only time will tell us about whether Liverpool will sign Lavia for the demanded £50 million amount or stick to other options from the squad.
