Second offer for Romeo Lavia by Liverpool is set to be made to Southampton

Liverpool interested in Southampton's 19-year-old midfielder Roméo Lavia, who is "looking to strengthen his midfield squad" Transfers

In addition to a revamped midfield, Liverpool is looking for a successor to Jordan Henderson and Fabinho’s upcoming move to Saudi Arabia. They have set their sights on a defensive midfielder who can play a ball-winning role at the bottom of midfield and scatter passes in front of the final line.

While various midfielders have been rumored, Southampton midfielder Romeo Lavia is the top target, with the first offer, which amounted to £37 million, being rejected by Southampton.

According to Fabrizio Romano, an Italian journalist well versed in the transfer market, Liverpool is preparing a second offer and is likely to make another attempt with a base fee and add-ons totaling £45 million.

“Understand Liverpool new formal bid for Roméo Lavia is almost ready — around £42.5m guaranteed fee plus £2.5m add ons up to total £45m package.”

“Liverpool want to be fast as Chelsea are still interested in Lavia, keeping close eye. Arsenal gone quiet as Thomas could now stay.”

Southampton is said to be demanding at least £50 million. It is unclear whether an agreement between the two clubs will be reached, but since the terms of the contract with the player can be agreed without any problems, everything will depend on the talks between the two clubs.
