Liverpool could potentially swoop in to sign a midfielder from Paris Saint-Germain, while also targeting a move for Roméo Lavia from Southampton. According to reports from Belgian publication La Dernière Heure, Lavia is Liverpool’s primary target as they look to bolster their midfield this summer.
The report suggests that there are “doors opening” for the 19-year-old to make the move to Anfield, with the player reportedly waiting for a call from his agent. However, it seems that Southampton are holding out for a significant sum of money, with a fee of around $66m (£52m/€60m) being suggested.
While this may be a stumbling block for Liverpool, it is clear that they are keen to bring in reinforcements in the midfield area. Lavia, who made his first-team debut for Southampton last season, has impressed with his performances and has been touted as a potential star of the future.
Liverpool’s interest in Lavia is not surprising, given their recent struggles in midfield. The departure of Georginio Wijnaldum to Paris Saint-Germain has left a big hole in the team, and while they have brought in Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig, they are still in need of more options in the middle of the park.
Interestingly, the report also suggests that Liverpool could potentially hijack a move for a midfielder from PSG. While no names are mentioned, it is clear that the French champions are looking to offload some players this summer, and Liverpool may see an opportunity to strengthen their squad by taking advantage of this situation.
Overall, it looks set to be a busy summer for Liverpool as they look to bounce back from a disappointing season. While they may face some obstacles in their pursuit of Lavia, it is clear that they are determined to add more quality to their midfield and compete for major honours once again.
