Liverpool might drop their interest in Khephren Thuram

Liverpool admires Nice’s Kephren Thuram a lot. However it appears Liverpool may be targeting the signing of Southampton’s young sensation Lavia, who is attracting a lot of attention this summer.
According to Belgian journalist Sacha Tavolieri, the Reds are now prioritising the signing of the 19-year-old, with Chelsea and Arsenal also reported to be in the hunt for his signature.

Journalist Ben Jacobs also confirms the above report. The Reds do not intend to sign the Frenchman following the arrival of Dominik Szoboszlai. He says that negotiations with OGC Nice will not take place this week since Liverpool is looking into a deal where the price is not an issue. Romeo Lavia of Southampton is a ‘one to watch’ i.e. ‘top priority’.

Moreover The Reds face competition from Bayern Munich for Thuram, according to Foot Mercato. The Germans have shown interest despite Thuram’s decline in form, according to the French site. They will strive to meet his entourage, with the 22-year-old having the same agent, Rafaela Pimenta, as Ryan Gravenberch.

Lavia joined Southampton from Manchester City just last summer. However he established himself as their star performer in a season that resulted in a relegation from the Premier League. Southampton are reportedly looking for a sum in the region of £50 million for letting their most valuable asset depart.
