Liverpool was quick to work on rebuilding its midfielders in this summer’s transfer window. In addition to Argentine midfielder Alexis Mac Allister, who led Brighton to their first Europa League, the club acquired Hungarian treasure Dominik Szoboszlai from RB Leipzig.
With Fabinho nearing 30 years of age and Stefan Bajcetic still inexperienced, many had hoped to secure a defensive midfielder, but it appears that the midfield reinforcements have been completed once and for all.
The team will return to the search for a midfielder only if there is a string of injuries or if one of their main players wants to move on.
Southampton midfielder Romeo Lavia is the top target at the moment, with Arsenal and Chelsea also interested, and his club is demanding £50m for him.
According to 90Min, the 19-year-old Belgian midfielder has no intention of playing in the Championship with Southampton, which were relegated from the Premier League last season, and although it is not an official transfer request, he has informed the club that he has no intention of staying.
He joined the club on a permanent transfer from Manchester City during last summer’s transfer window. He made 29 Premier League appearances last season and was a regular at the bottom of midfield.
A move away from the club seems inevitable, but where will Romeo Lavia play next?
