After Jordan Henderson and Fabinho’s departure this summer, Liverpool are in a need of new defensive midfielder, who ticks all boxes of their requirements.

The Belgian midfielder has emerged as the Red’s main target since the end of last season. Joining of Manchester City last summer, Lavia enjoyed an terrific season with Southampton.
The 19-year-old made 26 apperances across all competitions for Saints last season. Despite Southampton getting relegated last term, Lavia won applause from around the club.
Former boss Pep Guardiola is really impressed with Lavia’s performance last term and said :-
“I am really impressed with what Romeo has done and is doing.
“We had, and we have, an incredible opinion about him. We thought to keep him, but maybe he would not (get) enough minutes like he has in Southampton.”
Journalist expects Liverpool to table the penultimate bid for Lavia in the coming weeks
Journalist Sacha Tavolieri expects Liverpool to launch the third & final bid for Romeo Lavia in the coming weeks. He said :-
“Liverpool FC ready to make a third & ultimate offer for Romeo Lavia. I understand the bid will meet the £40m transfer fee expectations by Saints FC + add-ons. Player’s side just waiting for LFC to activate but informed the club his desire to join the Reds.
“There’s a feeling that Klopp’s team are the only squad able to do such offer at that moment. Dialogue remains opens as Southampton FC won’t let leave his biggest sale of the year with the financial impact of a relegation. Deal still ON.”
