2 midfielders wanted, duo’s training boost & Lavia reality – Latest LFC News

Another quiet day on the transfer front for Liverpool, sadly, but we did receive good news on the fitness of two Reds, plus a word on the club working “multiple solutions” for the midfield.


Reds want two midfield signings

We’ve been here before, haven’t we? At the start of the summer the needs were obvious but outgoings have ensured the need to address the midfield has only grown.

The push for Romeo Lavia remains in slow motion and Fluminense’s Andre is still being discussed as a target.

The latter would not be an alternative to the former according to Sky Sports’ Melissa Reddy, who claimed, “in an ideal situation,” Liverpool want to sign two midfielders with specific profiles.

That would be a “controller” and a “progressive destroyer,” and Reddy goes on to say the club are working on “multiple solutions” as they address the gaps in their squad.

The caveat, there is always at least one, is that it is still possible Liverpool “hold on one of the profiles” abovementioned, not exactly what fans will want to hear.

The hope is we see movement on the transfer front imminently but as of Friday, there has been no further talk of progress.

Tweet of the day and match of the night

This response from Huddersfield is great, you feel Liverpool’s social media admins could relate!

Well, league footy is now back on the agenda. For the Championship that is. Sheffield Wednesday host Southampton in the opener (8pm BST), time to see how many minutes Lavia will get…(hopefully none and it means a move to Anfield is near!)
