Rubbishes price tag claims!!! Fabrizio Romano issues timeline for Liverpool’s next signing

Fabrizio Romano has refuted claims that it will be less expensive to sign Romeo Lavia than the widely reported asking price of £50M.

The Belgian midfielder is “top of the list” for Jurgen Klopp this summer, the Italian journalist said earlier this week, but talks are still stuck.

Even though Liverpool has already brought in two midfielders, they still need at least one more, and if Jordan Henderson and Fabinho are sold, they’ll need even more.

What has changed about Liverpool’s efforts to sign Lavia?

Liverpool’s pursuit of Southampton’s Lavia has made little forward because the Reds disagree with Southampton’s £50M valuation of the 19-year-old.

Fabrizio Romano has taken action to refute a story from the Spanish daily Sport claiming Southampton is now willing to sell Lavia for just £34.3M.

Liverpool wants to get a midfielder in any situation. One of the names on the list is Romeo Lavia.

The sum being asked for isn’t exactly making them happy. Southampton has requested for close to £50 million. They want to pay far less for Lavia than this.

They are also aware of Chelsea’s and other teams’ interests. Because of this, the Lavia scenario is not straightforward, although he is undoubtedly one of the names on the list.

After Fabinho left, Liverpool prepared to step up its pursuit of Lavia

Romano has made it clear that Lavia won’t be signed until after Fabinho departs, as the club wants to complete his departure before stepping up talks with Southampton.

He is the main priority for incoming players even if there isn’t much action on that front right now. It will be interesting to watch who they target when Fabinho joins Al-Ittihad.

Given Lavia’s age, Klopp will want him to join preseason as soon as possible. The 19-year-old must be given as much time as necessary to become used to the Liverpool system before being dropped into the deep end.

Even if Fabinho and Henderson depart, it seems doubtful that Lavia will make his debut before he has had time to settle in and become familiar with Liverpool’s tactical approach.
