Liverpool’s Unwavering Pursuit of Romeo Lavia
Persistent Interest Despite Rejections
Despite recent reports suggesting otherwise, it appears Liverpool’s interest in Southampton’s Romeo Lavia is far from over. The Merseyside club has had two offers for the Belgian midfielder rebuffed in the past week, with Southampton standing firm on their £50 million valuation.
The Price Tag Dilemma
Southampton’s hefty price tag for the 19-year-old prodigy has been a sticking point in negotiations. Liverpool’s initial £37 million bid was followed by a £42 million offer, both of which fell short of the Saints’ expectations. The high valuation has led to speculation that Liverpool might be considering other targets.
A Third Bid on the Horizon?
However, recent comments on the Here We Go Podcast suggest that Liverpool’s pursuit of Lavia is far from over. The belief is that a third bid could be in the works, indicating Liverpool’s determination to secure the young talent. “Liverpool will try again, I remain convinced that Liverpool will try again and they will bid again for Romeo Lavia. But it’s on Southampton more than on Liverpool, so we will have to see how they react to these bids,” said the podcast host.
A Race Against Time
With the new season just a week away, Liverpool will need to act decisively. Manager Jurgen Klopp will be keen to have his squad finalised and ready to hit the ground running. The next few days could be crucial in determining whether Lavia will be donning the famous red jersey this season.
