TOP STORY: Liverpool line up Lavia deal
Liverpool and Southampton will continue to discuss a deal for midfielder Roméo Lavia, says Fabrizio Romano.
Lavia, 19, has been the subject of interest from the top clubs in Europe after a fine season in the Premier League. The Reds saw a £37m bid rejected earlier this week, but could return with an offer of £42.5m plus £2.5m add-ons. Though relegated Southampton are holding out for £50m.
Liverpool need a replacement for Jordan Henderson, while Fabinho is also closing on a move to Saudi Arabia. The club have already signed Alexis Mac Allister (£35m) and Dominik Szoboszlai (£60m) in their midfield overhaul.
Chelsea are also reported to be in the running for Lavia if they fail to land top target Moises Caicedo from Brighton for around £100m.
