Lavia to Chelsea, Sangare link & no Tchouameni – Latest LFC News

There has been plenty of reaction to Liverpool’s draw vs. Chelsea as well as movement in the transfer market.


Lavia chooses Chelsea

Liverpool aren’t having much look at the moment.

With Moises Caicedo on his way to Chelsea, it looks like Romeo Lavia will be heading the same way after reliable journalist David Ornstein reported the Belgian “has decided to join” the Londoners.

He added: “A fee in the region of £50 million plus add-ons is expected to seal the 19-year-old’s transfer.

Chelsea faced competition from Liverpool for the Belgium international, but the Anfield side are aware of Lavia’s choice.”

This comes following a report by Jacob Steinberg in the Guardian that the Reds had agreed a £60m deal with Southampton for the 19-year-old.

What Liverpool do now really is anyone’s guess.


In the transfer market…

  • Aurelien Tchouameni has no intention to leave Real Madrid despite “long-term admiration” from Liverpool, reports David Ornstein – it was a long shot anyway
  • Moises Caicedo’s Chelsea contract has been revealed by the Athletic – it shows just how difficult it is for Liverpool to compete
  • The brother of Ibrahim Sangare’s agent has said Liverpool, PSG and Bayern Munich are all interested in the highly-rated PSV defensive midfielder
