Lavia “increasingly likely” & Reds open to Thiago offers – Latest LFC News

With a second midfielder already through the door, Liverpool have quickly turned their attention to a third while one of the current crop attracts interest from afar.


Lavia “increasingly likely”

Romeo Lavia has emerged as Liverpool’s next priority as the summer rebuild of Jurgen Klopp‘s midfield shows no signs of slowing down.

Following Sunday’s unveiling of Dominik Szoboszlai, the Reds have turned their attention to the Southampton youngster in what would be their third midfield signing of the transfer window.

It comes with reports that interest in Nice’s Khephren Thuram has come to an end, with sights now appearing to be firmly fixed on the 19-year-old Belgian.

This Is Anfield understands that the signing of Szoboszlai ultimately brought Liverpool’s pursuit of Thuram to a conclusion, with Sky Germany’s Florian Plettenberg tweeting yesterday evening that the Reds are also “out of the race” for Bayern Munich’s Ryan Gravenberch.

All roads lead to Lavia, it seems!
