Midfield latest, Firmino’s next move & Colwill ‘contact’ – Latest LFC News

The midfield merry-go-round is on the agenda again in Wednesday’s news, along with our departed Brazilian’s next chapter and much more.


One in one out?

Following rumours of interest from Saudi Arabia in Thiago and Jordan Henderson, the latest reports appear to indicate that Liverpool will need to lose another midfielder if they are to bring in a third.

Romeo Lavia has been the primary subject of speculation when it comes to the next steps in the Reds’ summer rebuild, with comments from Southampton boss Russel Martin suggesting that he is resigned to losing some of his top players in this window.

The Athletic’s James Pearce and Raphael Honigstein have reported that a member of the “current crop” may have to make way if Liverpool are to follow up the signings of Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai with another.

It comes after reports on Tuesday suggested that the Reds had made Lavia their next top priority, with the teenager likely to move back into the Premier League after being relegated with the Saints.

Pearce and Honigstein also point out that Liverpool could yet dip into the market for a defensive signing, but the legitimacy of the Reds’ latest stance regarding the midfield remains to be seen.
