Chelsea looking to hijack Liverpool’s Romeo Lavia deal

Liverpool are pursuing a deal for Southampton star Romeo Lavia as they aim to bolster their ranks ahead of the 2023-24 season. 

The Reds have already had a £37 million bid turned down for the 19-year-old but are preparing to launch an improved offer. 

The Saints reportedly want around £50m for the Belgian who arrived at St Mary’s last summer from Manchester City. 

Lavia earned rave reviews for his performances last season, making 29 Premier League appearances and scoring a goal.

However, the young midfielder is expected to leave this summer following Southampton’s relegation to the Championship.

Chelsea are reportedly planning to hijack Liverpool’s move for the 19-year-old. 

The Blues, who attempted to sign Lavia for £50m a year ago, are prepared to table a higher offer than Liverpool.

But the good news for Liverpool fans is Lavia prefers a move to Anfield.

The Reds have had a busy summer transfer window, with Jurgen Klopp leading a big squad overhaul. 

They have released Roberto Firmino, Naby Keita, James Milner and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. 

Jordan Henderson has recently completed his transfer to Al-Ettifaq, while Fabinho looks close to moving to the Saudi Pro League.
