Since signing Alexis Mac Allister to a five-year contract, Liverpool has been unable to decide on a second addition to the squad. Although Khéphren Thuram, Manu Koné, and Gabri Veiga are considered strong candidates, it will soon be a month since the Argentine midfielder’s transfer was completed.
In addition to the two midfielders, Liverpool, who will be looking to acquire one center back by pre-season, may be serious about acquiring Southampton midfielder Roméo Lavia, who is being eagerly awaited by the Premier League’s most elite clubs.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Liverpool have confirmed the terms regarding the release of the Belgian midfielder, who experienced relegation last season, and have entered the battle for the target, in which they have long been reported to be interested, in earnest.
Understand Liverpool asked conditions of Roméo Lavia deal, they’re in the race. Arsenal, working on this deal for 15 days — no official bid from both clubs yet. 🚨🇧🇪 #LFC— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) June 26, 2023

Arsenal has recently made moves to acquire the player, and Manchester United and Chelsea are also keeping a close eye on developments.
Neither club has made an offer or initiated talks with the club, but the situation could change quickly in the coming weeks.
In addition to his physical gifts, he is a regular for Southampton, playing with a composure that is hard to believe for a 19-year-old.
He made 29 Premier League appearances last season and has a 40 million pound buy-back option with Manchester City, but it cannot be activated until 2024.
Which club will the young Belgian midfielder, whose reputation continues to grow in England, play for next season?
