Liverpool handed Romeo Lavia transfer boost after Southampton decision

Liverpool target Romeo Lavia has not travelled to face Gillingham in the Carabao Cup first round. The Saints have rejected three Liverpool bids for the 19-year-old Belgian, most recent offer in the region of £46m, as Russell Martin’s side stands firm on their £50m valuation. Negotiations are ongoing between the two clubs, Jurgen Klopp has been forced to act on the recent departures of Jordan Henderson and Fabinho. Initially, a £34m bid plus £4m in add-ons was rejected, before a second offer of £42m was rebuffed.

Reports emerged on Monday that the former Anderlecht and Manchester City prospect would not be travelling to the Priestfield Stadium. As expected when team news arrived from Kent, Southampton were without Lavia – who was an unused substitute for their Championship opening day win over Sheffield Wednesday on Friday. Both Che Adams and Lyanco, who have faced increasing scrutiny over their future at St Mary’s, start against the League Two outfit.

Happening In Few Weeks Time

“In the next four weeks the squad will look different. That’s just part and parcel of football. “Ideally the transfer window would be shut tonight! I’m sure every manager would want them, we could crack on. “It will look very different. It’s up to us to make sure with the changes that happen in the next four weeks that we are as strong – if not stronger – than we are tonight.”
