Liverpool is willing to pay up to £40m for Southampton midfielder Romeo Lavia Transfers

Liverpool has completed its midfield reinforcements with the acquisitions of Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai. Interest in a left-handed center back continues, with the name of Chelsea defender Levi Colwill frequently circulating in the media.

However, the strengthening of the midfielders is not necessarily the end of the story. Depending on the situation, a move for Southampton midfielder Romeo Lavia remains a possibility, and he may be in a battle with Arsenal and Chelsea.

According to the Football Insider, Southampton is demanding £50m for the player, but Liverpool is only willing to pay up to £40m. The odds of missing out on the Belgian midfielder are increasing if the race for him becomes a serious one.

The 19-year-old midfielder, who is under contract with his club until 2027, has built his reputation on his performances in the Premier League last season. The club has acquired England midfielder Declan Rice, but there is no probability that Arsenal will step on the accelerator either, and moves are likely to be made before the new season begins.

At this point, it is unlikely that Liverpool will be a serious contender, but if Fabinho, Stefan Bajcetic, and others suffer injuries, they could make a move in a hurry.

So where will Romeo Lavia, who does not wish to play in the Championship, find his new home…?
