Liverpool “will pay” for Lavia, Thiago trains & Andre blow – Latest LFC News

As we edge closer to the start of the season, we bring you the latest transfer stories along with news from Liverpool’s Chelsea preparations.


Lavia “will pay” Lavia asking price

Another day goes by without a solution to the Romeo Lavia saga!

The Southampton midfielder was left out of the side to face Gillingham in the Carabao Cup amid reports that he was looking to accelerate a move to Anfield.

Sacha Tavolieri has reported that there is a belief at the Saints that Liverpool will meet their £50 million valuation after a bid of £46 million was rejected earlier this week.

The Championship side have displayed a degree of flexibility elsewhere in allowing James Ward-Prowse to leave for West Ham at a fee below their asking price.

It seems, however, that they are choosing to stand firm as far as Lavia is concerned, while the Reds still find themselves without a recognised defensive midfielder with the season fast approaching.
