Liverpool double transfer 'clue' spotted as private plane tracked 'to training camp in Germany'
| Last updated
Liverpool could be in talks with both Romeo Lavia and Khephren Thuram after a conspicuous transfer clue emerged.
On Friday Liverpool received a £40million bid from Saudi Arabian side Al-Ittihad for midfielder Fabinho.
In turn, the 29-year-old did not travel with the rest of the squad for a training camp in Germany and talks are reportedly ongoing regarding the Brazil international’s future.
Meanwhile, Reds captain Jordan Henderson has also been linked with a move to Saudi Arabia, with Liverpool legend and Al-Ettifaq manager Steven Gerrard believed to be an admirer of the England international.
Henderson, who still has two years remaining on his current deal, is part of the Reds squad in Germany, with the Anfield side yet to receive a bid for the 33-year-old.
But should Jurgen Klopp’s side lose either midfielder, the club will likely be scouring the market for alternatives.
Liverpool to sign Romeo Lavia and Khephren Thuram?
On Monday morning, a flight that was meant to go from Nice to Liverpool instead travelled to Southampton, via a two-hour stop off at Blackpool.
The same flight is then scheduled to leave Southampton Monday evening for Stuttgart, near where Liverpool are undergoing their training camp.
This has led some to believe a member of Liverpool’s recruitment staff was in Nice for talks with France international Thuram, before flying to Southampton for negotiations with the Saints’ Lavia.
The theory has been corroborated by Gazzetta dello Sport’s fresh claim (via Paisely Gates) that Liverpool are set to increase their efforts to land Lavia this summer, with Southampton likely to demand £50million to part ways with the 19-year-old.
Meanwhile, Spanish publication Nacional reported that Liverpool, Barcelona and Bayern Munich are all interested in luring Thuram away from Nice, though the former cannot afford to meet the Frenchman’s asking price.
Liverpool and Bayern however, are allegedly willing to agree the required £42.5million for the 22-year-old.
